Review:

Pretty photos and decent directions demonstrate how to create dozens of different projects out of enamel, glass, pearl, ceramic, semiprecious, and other types of beads. From the basics of equipment and foundation techniques like threading, knotting, and finishing, to designing striking necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and brooches, A World of Beads takes the novice or intermediate beader through the fundamentals to an attractive finished product, with stops along the way to admire the beads of China, Europe, India, and Africa. --Amy Handy

From Booklist:

Today's marketplace yields a great diversity of ornamental beads, and Case's manual offers a fine variety of jewelry projects, utilizing not only decorative beaded combinations, but also lovely cords, threads, and wires that should be readily available for purchase. The necklace, earring, and bracelet designs feature a range of uniquely contemporary, handcrafted ceramic beads, antique multifaceted glass orbs, such lustrous gems as pearls, and brightly plated metal disks. A final section is devoted to do-it-yourself beads made from papier-ma{ƒ}che{‚}, and self-hardening, faux clay materials (polymer products). Straightforward directions are accompanied by line drawings to illustrate techniques and by color photographs showing finished pieces. Alice Joyce
