There's a lot to like in this new offering by Kalmbach. Teresa Morse has written a new book called Learn to Use Two-Hole Beads, which has not only a really good basics section, but also some great projects to work through your new skills. Just so you know upfront...the book concentrates on Super Duos and Twins, not on every shape of two-hole bead that there is. Of these, Super Duos are preferred for their more regular quality.
In the very beginning of the book is a preview of all the projects, twenty two in all, which is great for finding your next project quickly. The basics section follows, and is essential, especially the techniques which show you how to organize the beads for a project, how to add and end threads, how to step up through two-hole beads, make beaded findings, and design with color.
The project are divided by method of construction, design features, and materials. The simplest are individual beaded motifs that are stitched separately and then joined into beautiful jewelry, moving through more complex designs until you are adding layers and texture!
