I am very new to bead weaving and somewhat overwhelmed by all the techniques and the proficiency levels of some of my favorite bead weavers. I have to remember that some of them have been at it for a very long time.

This Beadweaving Master Class series of books are pretty to look at, informative but stretched out with BIG pictures.

A great reference for peyote stitch, particularly creating 3D shapes. Instructions and illustrations were easy to follow. Read my review on my blog.

great book if you like peyote stitch.
