Written by one of the UK's best known beaders, Jean Power is well known for her Geometric designs, but I feel that she has never forgotten what she has never forgotten what it is like to start in this extraordinary world of beads and how scary it looks. The book takes away the fear and gives the reader the key to enter the world of beads. Beautifully laid out, Chapter 1 starts with beads findings and tools, what they are and what they do. All the things you need to get started without making expensive mistakes.  The next 3 chapters take you through the basics of stringing, wirework and beadwork. Each chapter begins with inspiration photos from some of the best beaders in the country.  Then Jean shows you the supplies required for the particular chapter. Then we start on the basics with very clear photographs and diagrams, step by step. The very useful tips that are set down the side of the page will help even more to expand the way the reader learns the technique. As the pages are turned through the chapters, the 'oh i'd like to try that' jumps off the page. I wish this book was about when I first started beading, it would have saved me so many mistakes! Brilliant tips great photos, easy to understand disgrams, well explained in a very good value must have book that will be used over and over again.
