Review quote

"Her designs are all so beautiful and it really does catch the eye's attention! With her choices of colors, the designs really have that extra edge in them!" --Handmade Jewelry Club

"The graphics for this book provide some of the best illustrated instructions I have seen in a long, long time... This inspirational book will make a delightful addition to any serious beadweaver's library." --Beading Gem

"But it is so much than just a book full of patterns. In her introduction, Kasie states that her goal in writing the book was not only to teach readers how to create the designs, but also to inspire everyone to discover their own creativity and ideas. She certainly accomplished this goal with me. I can hardly wait to finish up my current projects and begin exploring with the ideas that came to mind as I read each chapter of her book... The way Kassie explains each technique and explores the possibility of new designs using these techniques inspired me as a designer and I highly recommend this book to others." --Beads Forever

"Beadweaving: Beyond the Basics, by Kassie Shaw teaches some new intermediate variations on right angle weave through 24 beautiful projects. There is a progression through the projects of idea building upon idea, but it's not absolutely essential to work straight through. Kassie wants to inspire people to use the ideas as jumping off points for personal design work... The illustrations and directions are excellent, and basics are included in the front to refresh you on the basic stitches before you take off with the variations. One of the most exciting things to me is that this book presents so many new bezeling possibilities." --Beading Arts

About Kassie Shaw

"I began making jewelry in late 2004, working primarily with beads (not seed beads) and wire. It was 2006 when I made my first beadwoven project and since then, I've left stringing and wirework behind and focused on off-loom designs. I have been published more than a half dozen times since 2010, and had a piece featured on the cover of Beadwork Magazine in 2012."
