Book Review ' Beaded Opulence'
'Beaded Opulence - Elegant Jewelry Projects with Right Angle Weave' by Marcia DeCoster.
This book is also from Lark Books and labeled Beadweaving Master Class. I haven't found any mention if this is a series of books or what.
There are some great projects in the book, some are really dressy pieces. The charts and instruction are clear and easy to follow. All projects are done with RAW. There are some amazing rope necklaces. Marcia makes use of a lot of gold beads and crystals, Opulence is right :)
Again, though, I wish there was more to this book. It's only 128 pages, and probably 25 of those pages eye candy photos (no instructions for these pieces), introduction, and bead basics.
Still it's just $11.72 on Amazon. Eligible for free shipping with a $25 purchase.
