Synopsis:

Beaders and other artisans have knowledge and ideas at their fingertips with this comprehensive reference to more than 600 individual beads that are readily available and appropriate for contemporary projects. Chapters are separated by bead material—including glass, wood, semi-precious stone, and ceramic beads. Each bead is pictured from several angles, alongside descriptions of dimensions, color range, usage, special care, size of hole, weight, suitable stringing materials, relative cost, and suggested complementary beads. An extensive index lists suppliers in stores and online, making this reference an invaluable companion for designers looking to add to their bead-bag of tricks.

This is the best book going at the time. It is wonderful and the knowledge you will have acquired at the end of the book is phenomanal. Beautiful, dynamic fully illustrated photos. Anyone that is into beading, new or seasoned, should buy this book. Beading is a big hit right now, especially on eBay. This is a book that will not have a chance to draw any dust from sitting on a bookshelf! I highly recommend you buying the book for yourself and pick up and extra copy for your best beading buddy for Christmas. She/He will be your best friend for life.
