The projects range from fairly elegant and simple pieces to much more complex and challenging designs. All of the projects are based on ropes either for bracelets, necklaces, lariats or even earrings and one intriguing ring. The projects are grouped by technique with a good supply list including tools needed for the projects.
While probably not the first project book to consult for the new beader, it would be great inspiration while one is learning and would provide good challenges for some time to come. I recommend the book for experienced beaders and those looking for new inspirations.

The jewelry represents a wide variety of styles and techniques by both well known jewelry artists as well as lesser known artists, so the complexity varies, but not the high quality.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in beading or jewelry, either as a collector or creator.
