Books: New Arrivals

Thursday, March 20 

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.  

          Book Findings n Finishings

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!!

  1. Very cool books ~ will have to go look at them.

    I have the Beader’s Bible which is pretty good too.

  2. I can’t wait to see what you create next.

    Thanks!! The bracelet I purchased the book for looks kind of complicated but I am going to try it anyway.

    I have the first book, but not the second… yet!
    Where can I buy a few consecutive lifetimes, do ya know? I have so many things I want to do… and so many yummy supplies to use up. Alternatively, do you have a recipe for slowing down the passage of time, and speeding up getting things done in it, and maximising enjoyment in the process?
