"Diane Fitzgerald, the queen of beautiful beadweaving, takes us on an adventure into creating three-dimensional beaded geometric shapes. Start with two-dimensional shapes and learn how to properly increase and decrease to create angles and curves. Then, move on to create open shapes, and then finally the awesome three-dimensional designs like you see on the cover. Intimidated? Don't be! Diane is a magnificent teacher and takes good care to make sure her students are successful!" - Bead Unique magazine, October 2011"The illustrations are clear, the instructions concise, and there are lots of inspirational photos throughout.
