New Beading Books

I have been unusually quiet online lately.  This is mostly due to the large amount of writing I’ve been doing in the real world.  In the last few months I’ve put the finishing touches on three beading books.  Teaming with our amazing Bead World staff, we’ve released a trio of fun instructional books.  These beauties have everything you’ve come to love in Bead World books — lots of helpful pictures, step by step instructions and great project ideas!
