5.0 out of 5 stars If you buy one book to tell you how...buy this Nov. 10 2002
Format:Hardcover
In Europe, people dress up in buckskins, hang out in tipis and emulate the Native Americans of days gone more than a century and a half ago. Their attention to detail seems to be no less than compulsive, and this book is an ultimate product of this compulsion for authenticity, accuracy and completeness.
Barth has completed an instructional masterpiece of Native American Bead work that I give to experienced Native beaders to their astonishment. If you want to learn technique, buy this book.

If you are interested in traditional Native American beadwork you won't find a better book than this one for making your work as close to traditional as possible. Georg goes into exhaustive detail on what materials to use, where to get them and the exact methods used by traditional Native American beadworkers. He has researched the subject thoroughly and has a very respectful attitude. This book is truly a labor of love

I found the book to be one of the best sources of information pertaining the native- american -style beading, espeacially the transmontane beadwork. I have found there several hints and pieces of information I was looking for for several years. Thank you, Mr. Barth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Path to Finding Technical Perfection... Dec 8 2004
By Kathleen Poston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
and that ain't an easy pathway to find, believe me. I love Barth's insistance on using only the most traditional methods, when there are multiple techniques that could be covered. His instructions are so clearly illustrated and explained that I've actually gotten a grip on a method that I have failed to understand for years and am presently using to cover a walking stick with - traditional style gourd stitch. Most books simply teach the two step method and don't even mention the older, three step method and when they do, their instructions tend to be so confusing that I end up with a stick wrapped in a tangled net of tiny beads and thread. But thanks to Barth, I finally get it!

The other methods he covers, lane stitch, loomwork, diagonal weaving and others, he covers with equal clarity and skill and I'm looking forward to using this book to upgrade my abilities and make my art jewelry better than ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars great reference book Feb. 18 2009
By Tlball40 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is being used as a textbook for a beading class I am taking and the instructor swears by it and she is an extremely talented beader who does beautiful work and knows her materials. Her and I and the rest of our class are all Native American and really appreciate the book and are able to learn a lot from it.
