"A solid overview of the popular herringbone technique: from the creation of flat bands--to round and tubular--and on to twisted tubular variations, as well as connections to other types of stitches." --Perlen Poesie
"I can recommend this excellent instructional book to you completely and wholeheartedly. It is not only educational and helpful in the best sense, it is BEAUTIFUL!" --Pretty Kitty Dog Moon Jewelry
Herringbone is my favorite stitch but I wanted a book that would help me push myself. This beautiful book will do that WITHOUT needing to buy any of the newer shaped beads with multiple holes - sticks to the basics (15s,11s,8s) round seed beads or triangles, some crystals. The backgrounds used to photograph finished projects are light, soft & don't compete with the beadwork. The print size is large enough to be easily read. Melinda has done an awesome job laying out all of the stitch diagrams throughout this book. They are a generous size; new thread path is a different color than the thread paths before it; different bead color/sizes to represent what is being used in the project. Each new section has several pages with instructions for the various types of herringbone stitch (flat, circular, tubular, etc) & 1 primary project with several 'design options'. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in off-loom beading. Even those new to beading will find a few 'get started' projects & their skills will grow as they work through the book. A great addition to anyone's beading library.
I have my "book" on my Kindle. For this reason, I would really like to see a page up front that pictures all of the projects in the book. That's my only reason for removing a star.
