Book review: Beadwoven Glamour

Do you like crystals?  Do you like shaped beads?  Do you like stitching components that you can use to make matching earrings or bracelets?  Isabella Lam's latest book, Beadwoven Glamour, may be just what you're looking for!  You may remember Isabella's work from a few years ago when Kalmbach published Beautiful Beadweaving.  Everyone was talking about it.  Everyone wanted a copy.  And it was soooo worthwhile!

The instructions and illustrations make it a snap to follow along with the projects, and there is a complete and specific materials list for those who want it.  The Empera Necklace, shown above on the cover, is one of the more complicated pieces.  There are also several that are much simpler to stitch, although even those look luxe and expensive.  There are some simple pendants that are similar to the ones shown below.  They might be a great way to get your feet wet! 

The projects are challenging, but because of the excellent instructions, I feel that a determined advanced beginner could have success here.  And what glorious designs to make for yourself or for a friend!
