And just when you find yourself in need of some major inspiration, along comes number two in the Lark Books series "Spotlight on Beading": Marcia DeCoster Presents - Interviews with 30 beaders on inspiration and technique. Do you remember my review for the first in the series, Suzanne Golden Presents? Well, this volume is another of those WOW books that I just couldn't put down. Marcia has been incredibly prolific herself this past year, and now this time you get to sit back and enjoy the work of other artists that she has specifically chosen to showcase, not only for their beautiful work, but also for their ability to communicate their inspirations and methods.

One major difference between this book and Suzanne Golden's is that Marcia has chosen artists who all work with seed beads. Some of them work with other materials as well, but seed beads are primary for all but one or two of them. And jewelry is a primary for most as well, as opposed to non-wearables. So if you love seed beads, or you just like to admire them, make sure you get to see this stunning book!
