The thirteen designs in this book all have step by step instructions and the diagrams make the beading easy to follow. There are projects for all abilities and every design is coded to suit your beading level.
Most beaders will have the beads needed to complete the designs as there are no hard to find beads used in the projects and those that you don't already have are easily obtained.
You will find the Cheeky Robin bauble hard to ignore and the Anastasia bauble could grave the most elegant tree around. Who could resist a Beaded Nutcracker Soldier and for your budding ballerinas there is the beautiful Sugar Plum Fairy with her pretty pink tutu.
The book contains stacks of colour pictures and also alternative colourways for a lot of the designs. All materials needed are listed and there are lots of extra info boxes that contain more help and information.
This is a must have Festive Beading book for any beadworker's bookshelf.
I am really new to beading, and to be honest I have taken to it like a duck to water. It is so simple once you understand the techniques.
This is a beautiful book.
The designs are extraordinarily stunning and add a touch of class and something wonderful to your Christmas Tree decor.
Each design has a Star ability level, so even a beginner can achieve a bauble, candle or Candy Cane that will enchant and amaze.
Handy hints and tips are given in info boxes and all you really need is a beading needle, some thread and of course some beads.
The colours are amazing, I was in awe of the Peacock Bauble, which is on the front cover, but each design is really something special.
Instructions are simple and each come with a diagram, which is easy to understand.
This is book 4, and I am definitely going to add the other 3 to my collection.
