Thrilled to bits!!! Review by Rosemary

An excellent book. The instruction on the many versions of peyote are easy to follow and comprehensive. The designs are timeless, this is a book that will not go out of date. Can somebody campaign for a 36 hour day, that is the only way I will have time to work up all my favourite designs from this book.

Excellent book and a good addition to your beading library Review by Teresa

I am pleased with this book. It is well-organized, and has interesting projects. These are well laid-out and easy to follow. There is enough challenge even for an experienced beader and beginners will gain good skills. I especially liked the section on geometric shapes, which has opened up new possibilities for me. The book is colourful and user friendly.
