Reviews - What do our customers think?
great book  Feb 14, 2008
I like this book. The design are nice, but it would be better if there are more ideas of desinging beads.
Love bohemian, love this book!  Oct 13, 2007
The beadwork taught by this book is even more exquisite as a finished product than the inspiring photos. The directions took me a while to catch on to, but now I find the instructions very effective. If you are hooked on beading, and like bohemian style, these projects are definitely worthwhile.

N.B.- Some of the projects call for 5mm czech firepolish round beads, which I cannot find locally. Shipwreck Beads on the internet have this hard-to-find size.
Great for beginners like me.  Oct 10, 2007
I've been tinkering with beads for a few months and have taken 2 beginner classes. This book really helped with ideas for projects on my own. I've loaned it to friends who have also loved it!
I don't mean to be the naysayer, but...............  Jul 26, 2007
this book has beautiful colors and interesting designs. However, as has been mentioned by only a few other reviewers, the directions are a bit sparse. I can follow them, but could use a little more detail. My biggest disappointment was in the photography. The pictures are done in what is, I guess, an "artistic" interpretation - a small portion of each piece of jewelry is clear and the rest is blurry. The technique reminds me of what a movie maker might do if he or she were trying to make an 80 year old person look 22 - a LOT of haze! Quite a few other reviewers mentioned how visual they are, as am I, and yet I didn't see much mentioned about the photography. I love to see pictures of the beautiful work of jewelry artists - the colors, the sparkle of the crystals, the play of the light on the beads - I can't see any of this in the pictures. Maybe I will like the book more after I make some of the projects. However, I will not be buying any more books in this series.:(:(
This is good stuff!  Jan 7, 2007
I originally saw Bead Fantasies IV in the local library. After checking it out, I had to buy it. Then I saw the previous 3 books by the same author and immediately put them on my wish list. Today I got the first and 4th one in the mail!

Worth the money! The first book has several examples of rings and more (but I was bowled over by the rings). The basic instructions in the back helped me to figure out a few problem spots that I have had while trying various patterns from other sources. This was impressive for me! In just a few minutes the pictures in the back of Bead Fantasies sorted the whole mess out!

If you like bead weaving and pieces that look like flowers and sparkle, this whole series of books by Takaki Samejima is worth buying!
