Fashionistas will oh-so-quickly grab onto the techniques and projects detailed by Briton Taylor. Not only are beaded purses quite the carry-all in this millennial year, they also are designed to capture the attention of antiquers devoted to yesteryear's bags. Here, Taylor streamlines the educational process, substituting excellent charts, graphs, illustrations, and photographs for words. In many cases, the step-by-step instructions are superfluous once techniques are mastered. Twenty-three threaded designs to carry and seven variations--earrings, scissors case, and thimbleand scarf holders--will empower even those without the eye for a needle to stitch merrily away; it's truly any novice's choice of elegant beadwares, from the emulation of a peacock tail to a gold-on-gold tote.
