What beautiful, showpiece necklaces you can make following the instructions in this book - wearable art in the most exciting sense. The materials and tools needed are inexpensive and readily available, the work portable, the results striking. When you wear the necklaces you make, they elicit admiration and praise. The book opens with an exciting gallery of the work done by Helen Banes and many of her students. Once your appetite is whetted by what you have seen, then Diane Fitzgerald explains how the neckpieces are made and presents you with 19 projects for making your own. Each project is shown with a full page color photograph of the completed piece and a working diagram for it. Profusely illustrated in color.
Equisite enticement, well-rewarded, January 14, 1998
Reviewer: McQuinn@ from Baltimore
Generous (and rare) is the crafter who shares the secrets of years of experience, includes shortcuts and tips and presents diagrams and step-by-step instructions. Fitzgerald and Banes do all this, then reward the reader with well-composed color photographs of the finished product.
While bead weaving is not for the timid or easily discouraged, the bold and the brave will be well-rewarded by trying the technique. Clear instructions make it easy to complete a piece that is satisfying from the creative center of the artist to the fingetips of the crafter. A must-read for those of us who dream of the color and texture satisfaction that weaving or jewelry making bring.
