Review quote

"This is a really great book for learning how to make lots of different styles of beads from polymer clay, with plenty of ideas for designing your own. A fabulously colourful book which will inspire both beginners and more experienced craftspeople to experiment with shape and colour, with, I suspect, some quite individual results!" Craftsman Magazine (May 2007)
