I made a quick trip to Border’s Bookstore yesterday. I knew exactly which books I needed and wanted. I had my list in hand. Found everything except one book which was out-of-stock and had to be ordered.
Adding these two books to my Beading Craft Resource library.
Findings & Finishings by Sharon Bateman. A BEADWORK How-To-Book. Published by Interweave Press. Copyright 2003. Soft cover, 118 pages. Trade secrets and techniques for finishing off beadwork. Lots of beautiful bracelets I want to make.
The BEAD Directory by Elise Mann. The complete guide to choosing and using more than 600 Beautiful Beads. Published by Interweave Press. Copyright 2006. Hard cover, spiral, 256 pages. This book covers everything: glass, crystals, semiprecious beads, precious metals, base metals, clay, plastic and wood. It also has chapters on other natural materials and findings. I am sure this book will become my new BFF. Best Friend Forever!!
