Beading Basics and Beyond


Beading Basics and BeyondBeading Basics and Beyond
By Alice Korach and Toshi Myoda
Gifted by Design Originals
Reviewed by Maria Nerius

Alice Korach was the founding editor of Bead & Button Magazine and knows a little something about beads and beading. One couldn’t ask for a more knowledgeable author! Toshi Myoda has been a designer for TOHO for 15 years and part of her job includes creating kits for the Japanese market and inventing new materials for beading. TOHO is a glass bead manufacturer. The book is amazing. This is beading with a little magic mixed in! Projects include an Autumn Lei, Ruby Flower necklace, Crystal Spheres earrings, Nautilus necklaces, and more. The detail is incredible. You can’t look at the projects and not want to go racing to your beading supplies. The color themes are on trend and classic giving you projects to spice up any outfit or a gift your friend will be talking about for ages. I loved the book. Bravo!

From looking at the cover design I imagine this will a unique book. If I may make a suggestion, please include the number of pages that is in the book or maybe the number of projects so that the purchaser knows a little more about what is being offered.

I think I really, REally REALLY want this book. I am not much for designing or creating my own things yet....I pretty much have to copy anything I make right now.

This book looks wonderful, I have alot of seed beads in all colors and it looks like I might be able to use them here.

I love making jewelry, but we don't have money left over, so I craft with what I find. (Cut up dried potatoes make great beads). I would love this book for ideas!
