Cute idea. A lot of the designs seem more for kids, but I think a lot of the instructions would need some simplification first.

Bead Bugs by Amy Kopperude isn't so much about making a fashion statement or creating a style as it is about doing something different and fun. As the subtitle explains Cute, Creepy, and Quirky Projects to Make with Beads, Wire, and Fun Found Objects.

Wow! Beautiful Bugs. Easy to follow instructions,a fun and unique craft. I read a lot of craft books, looking for that special project that I can make that interests me, oddly enough I like bugs!

I am very impressed with this book. We just started working with beads and there are several very cute projects with photos and detailed instructions so it is not too intimidating. I like the fact that these projects vary from easy to more difficult and am amazed at how beautiful many of these "bugs" are!

Fantastic pictures of amazing bead creations. Inspiring for the crafter and an ideal eye candy 'coffee table' book.
