Product Description

About the Author

Author Horace Goodhue, widely respected in the world of beadwork and well known as the author of "Indian Bead-Weaving Patterns," died at home early in the morning on July 16, 1997. His book, which has sold thousands of copies, documents more Indian beadwork techniques than any other book ever published. The book was a labor of love for Goodhue. "His mission was to carry on the beadwork of Indians, even when some of the younger people were not learning the traditions from their grandparents," said Orpha Goodhue, his wife. Although not a Native American, Goodhue held a deep respect for these people through many contacts over the years. "Horace loved people and gained a great deal of energy from them. He listened to people and related to them through their perspective." All beaders are deeply in his debt.

Format: Paperback
Horace Goodhue can be credited with being the first to document many Native American beadwork techniques. Between the pages of this little book, there are more techniques than any other I know of. Goodhue died a few years ago at age 96, but during his life, he devoted a great deal of time to learning about the Native American culture even though he was not Native American. While the book lacks the color examples prominent in many current books, it compensates with a wide variety not found in other publications. For anyone serious about doing beadwork, this book should be on your shelf. While the directions may seem a bit cryptic at first, due to their brevity, they are well done and will provide much stimulation for anyone who does either contemporary beadwork or Native American beadwork. Don't miss this book!

Format: Paperback
Horace Goodhue's book is a terrific guide for beaders of all levels. While the drawings are simple black and white line drawings, the instructions are written beautifully. It is easy to follow, well-illustrated (black and white photos of the "end product"), and a must for every beader. I find myself referring to it often and I've been beading for a long time. There are many weaves that Mr. Goodhue covers that are not covered anywhere else. This is a personal collection of patterns, stitches, and weaves that he's collected through the years. I highly recommend this book for beaders of all skill levels. Its information isn't duplicated anywhere else in one volume

Format: Paperback
This was my first beadbook. I began beading about ten years ago and I still find this to be one of my favorites. My favorite design is the spiderweave. Incorporate a few small glass drops, a few pearls, gemstone chips or glass accents - this design still is my best seller and favorite to create and wear. Mr. Goodhues instructions are easy to follow.
