Product Description

Review

Beading is extremely popular with girls from about age seven or eight, and they’ll find dozens of patterns and suggestions in this easy-to-follow guide. It includes instructions for a homemade beading loom made out of a shoebox, which saves the cost of buying a store-made loom.

Format: Paperback
The snappy, fun, and bright beaded jewelry in this book will motivate crafty adolescents to try their hand at making these pieces. The materials are easy to acquire where there are beading supplies, and the instructions are very well illustrated and easy to follow. The techniques are fairly simple, mostly using needle and thread. One of the pieces shows how to finish the ends by using a crimp bead next to the clasps, but all the others are finished by tying the ends in a knot around the clasps, and then sealed with clear nail polish. This repetition of technique keeps the process simple and eliminates the tools generally used in jewelry-making. Some kids might want some help, but once started, they should sail along making these coiled bracelets, strung bracelets and anklets, and earrings. There are also clear illustrations for making a bead loom, and for showing how to weave the beads on the loom to make Indian-look woven bracelets.

Nice book Dec 6 2010
By Fran E. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a good book for if you have a niece or little girl in your life that enjoys making jewelry or arts and crafts. It has simple instructions and the patterns in it allow for the person to experiment with bead styles or colors. The instructions are very detailed and step-by-step so that you can follow them. And it features the lengths of a bracelet/necklace, how to make a bead loom, and what supplies to use.

Not what I was hoping for Sept. 23 2005
By Merly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is a great beginner book. If you are wanting to learn simple, well-explained projects, this book is for you. They are beginner level projects that would be perfect for children. If you've already learned beading basics, this book would be a waste of your money.
