Ornate Designs, October 30, 2006 By Rebecca Johnson "The Rebecca Review" (Washington State)
This review is from: Seed Bead Savvy (Best of Bead & Button Magazine) (Paperback) Seed Bead Savvy presents
simple and sophisticated designs with full color photography, clear illustrations and detailed editorial-tested instructions. Seed
beads are tiny beads or building blocks of jewelry design, but in this book they create stunning designs with ornate elements.If
you can't walk past a bead store without going in and buying more beads, then this book is a must-have for your collection.
Whether you are just starting to make jewelry or are looking for a new fascinating design, this book has something for every
level of expertise, but seems to focus more on artistic interpretations and more complex items like fringed collars.The first
chapter explores the basic types of seed beads and then shows the materials and tools you need for the specific beads you will
be using.A few of the intriguing designs include:Reading a Pattern - Ideas for reading a geometric tapestry pattern to make a
decorative wall hanging with seed...

This review is from: Seed Bead Savvy (Best of Bead & Button Magazine) (Paperback) I bought this for the beadweaving
patterns so was disappointed to discover that there were stringing and other types as well. But on the plus side, I benefitted
from the intro material on the seed beads with an excellent page of photos which include bugles and lots of other beads plus
another page describing them. Most of the patterns did appear in Bead and Button but still it's nice to have this collection to
work from as it's hard to check back through all my issues. First four items are strung. Two loomwork patterns follow. Amulet
bag in peyote, bead embroidered portrait, square stitch necklace, another bead stringing, floral centerpiece, fringed collar and
17 more beadweaving patterns. Some are bracelets, some necklaces and one pair of earrings. The choices are good and I plan
on making several of them.

Fun! Fun! Fun!, September 8, 2007 By Janice E. Beasley "Queen of Purple" (Williston, FL)
This review is from: Seed Bead Savvy (Best of Bead & Button Magazine) (Paperback) This is an excellent collection from
Bead and Button magazine. The photos are clear. There is a 'shopping list' for each project and well written directions. Even
though I have subcribed to Bead and Button for several years, this is a great collection of seed bead projects.I appreciate the
variety of projects. Now I don't have to dig through piles of magazines to find a cool project.
