Books!



I don't purchase many beading books, but I have just recently bought these three: "Masters in Beadweaving" - with many of my personal beading goddesses/gods included in this book, I had to have this in my collection.

When I was in Ohio recently for a beading girly weekend, I had the opportunity to look through these books. Ohmygoodness! What stunning eye candy in "The Beaded Sphere" by Judy Walker. I can't wait to try some of these items.

Also, Diane Fitzgerald's "Shaped Beadwork" shook me out of my non-book buying behavior! Some of the pieces in this book look like cast metal items - it's fabulous.

Finally, I am waiting with "bated breath*" for the release these two books. The first from my personal bead mentor, Marcia Decoster's, book - "Beaded Opulence" and Rachel Nelson-Smith's "Seed Bead Fusion"



{*Bated here is a contraction of abated through loss of the unstressed first vowel (a process called aphesis); it means “reduced, lessened, lowered in force”. So bated breath refers to a state in which you almost stop breathing as a result of some strong emotion, such as terror or awe.}

Thanks for the info on the new books. I am looking forward to Marcia's book as I have taken several classes from her and will do so again at a retreat in October. Rachel is teaching at our annual bead society retreat this year. Her book looks very interesting as well.

I told myself I had enough beading books. Then I found "Masters of Beadweaving" and "Shaped Beadwork." And the two that aren't out yet are on my Amazon wish list. It's great that there's so many great bead books coming out by my favorite rock star beaders.

aaawwww, how sweet are you! I agree wholeheartedly with your taste in books. I've had just a little peak at Rachels, and oh my! And I love Diane's, it is first in the series of beadweaving master class and mine is second...

I don't buy many new beading books either, but the one RAW is stunning and I can't wait to hear/see more. I love when Margie Deeb has a new book as they are always just full of inspiration.
