Format: Paperback
I have to first say that the photos and projects in this book, as well as the others in the Beadwork series, are gorgeous. They are not your typical jewelry items: they show unique colors and mixtures and ideas. Love that part. What I hate about the book is the format...it is long and skinny with a tough spine. In other words, extremely difficult to hold, much less do a project from. It's so narrow that the inside page closest to the spine often cuts off certain words. I tried going to office max to have one drilled to be loose leaf, with the spine cut off, but it still makes for awkward work. Why they couldn't make this a full size book with a lay flat spine is beyond me.

Exquisite and artistic bags Dec 12 2004
By S. Brand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I agree with other reviewers that this shape of book is not the easiest to read, but I flattened my copy and put a weight on it to hold it open while working... no big deal. It's what's inside that counts!

The 30 exquisite purse and bag designs in the book, shown in full color photographs, are contributed by different artists, and each is extremely unique in its design and method. Several of the purses are knitted, and some are crocheted. Some have strands of beads couched onto fabric. Some are created with peyote stitch or on a bead loom, then sewn together. One is sewn onto a metal purse frame. One I partricularly like has strands of beads glued (using special sticky tape) onto a purchased tote in a gorgeous design. Some are large and shopping-baggish, and others are small amulet bags or clutches. Every one of them is gorgeous, and you will not find anything like them in any store, unless it is an expensive boutique. They look like collectors' items.

There are no quick and easy projects here. They require time, commitment to read through the instructions and follow them step by step, and skill with the hands. The written instructions are fairly easy to understand, but experienced crafters will follow them more easily. There are illustrations, but a few more would be helpful.

The last section of the book shows how to do all the different stitches and techniques used in the projects, but for knitted bags, you will already need to know how to knit. Hand and machine sewing skills are required for some of the projects.

So-so directions, poor format Aug. 14 2013
By Laura Gail - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I work with beads all the time; I work in a bead store, and I absolutely love beadweaving. I am a very slow learner who needs clear directions when doing a project.

While on a vacation I decided to experiment with making amulet bags and bought several books on beaded bags & amulet bags. At first this book is very appealing, the projects look interesting, the photographs are lovely, and my overall sense of this book was that the projects would be good intermediate level ones. But once I began to work with some of these projects I quickly found myself badly confused. The directions are not always clear, and there are no illustrations to show how various steps are done. Some projects have clear, direct instructions which are easy to follow, while other projects left me just confused.

As noted in another review, the physical format of this book is problematic for anything other than casual reading. I love Beadwork magazine, but this book just didn't measure up to the magazine. I would not buy this book unless it was used or deeply discounted. There are much better books on this subject.
