Item Description...
This collection of projects inspired by myth, symbolism, religion, and personal beliefs is designed for beaders and artists interested in imbuing their work with meaning. The 26 designs range from necklaces and bracelets to wall hangings, bags, an heirloom box, and even a mobile. Each piece has a distinct focus and specific purpose that is elaborated on by its designer, who writes about the significance beading plays in his or her life. The designs are divided into chapters focusing on different aspects: protection, healing, strength, good fortune, prayer, bonding, and remembrance. A wide range of techniques is offered for beadworkers, with some as basic as knotting, seed beading, peyote stitch, brick stitch, ladder stitch, and bead embroidery stitches. More specialized techniques include bead weaving, beading on screen, and painting on glass. Beyond the projects inside, this guide is a starting point for an artist's own creativity and self-expression.

A great book for ideas.  Jul 9, 2008
Too yummy. I know, I should come up with a more professional way to say that right? Honestly though, I'm just in awe of the gorgeous work in this book.
It's not really a book for beginners,there is an appendix in the back that explains techniques, but a lot of the projects are a bit advanced, and laid out as guidelines, not finished projects, there are a lot of techniques and ideas in this book, I was absolutely stunned and inspired by Julia Pretl's gorgeously embroidered Heirloom Cube.
I'm thrilled with this book.
Beading for the Soul:Inspired Designs from 23 Contemporary Artists  Mar 28, 2007
This book is great! I wanted a gift for my mother who is getting more experienced at jewlry making. She loves the book.
Beading Art book  Mar 23, 2006
short on technique, lots of talk. Pieces could have been shown on/being used rather than as static objects.
Remarkable and Uplifting . A Must Have for Your Beadbook Library!  Feb 4, 2006
If you, like me, find that when you are creating pieces of jewelry you are released from everyday cares and nourished by what you are doing, then you will understand instantly what makes this book special.

I have been making jewelry for some time now, but I have never consciously tried to figure out what it is about the process of creating the things that I make that I find so replenishing.

Beading for the Soul explains in separate sections (for example: "Beading for Protection", "Beading for Good", Beading for Prayer") what it is that we are doing when we pick up a bead and SAY something with it. I was wowed by this book. I finally understood why someone like me, who has a love of beauty but also has a need for quiet, introspective time (as a parent of children with disabilities) would want to really come forward and express myself. Put me under the heading of "Beading for Healing". The author, Deborah Cannarella, has a chapter titled that. Yes, put me there, and put this book in your cart if you wish to understand why you are doing what you do when you bead. It is a beautiful book in every sense of the word, anyway. Lovely photos, moving stories from the artists, and inspiring projects. I am grateful I chose this book as one of my New Year's gifts to myself.
Wonderful Inspirations  Jan 7, 2006
Just received this book yesterday and can barely put it down. The photos are crisp, illustrating the details of each piece. It's refreshing to discover how an artist is inspired and not just what stitch or thread to use. Great gift for a beader!
