On the back cover of this book is a quote from the author, Josie Fabre. She says, "Peyote is so beautiful and versatile, but I am impatient and easily distracted. I kept thinking there had to be a better way, and found that there was. Fast Peyote!!!"--JosieI love the enthusiasm in this quote, and if you look at the book's cover, you can see that this enthusiasm goes hand in hand with a curiosity and love of beauty which totally rocks. Josie is a scientist who likes to craft and take photos. She offers her patterns, along with some excellent word charts, in this book simply and unaffectedly, yet each of them is a totally beautiful treasure. The reader will want to take a trip with the author as she explains what Fast Peyote Stitch Jewelry is. Hold on tight for a really fun ride!After the introduction (which explains how the author learned about Fast Stitch Peyote, and employed the concept using her own photographs and multi-drop stitching), there is a section covering the basics.The projects follow. They are divided into "Natural Wonders", "Wonderful Wings", Wild Side", "Colorful Classics", "Modern Marvels", and "Bonus Projects".Each one is inspired by photos which the author took around where she lives in California, and during her travels. This adds a great deal to the charm of the book.At the end of the book is a technique section which explains how to read peyote stitch and fast peyote stitch instructions very clearly. It contains explanations on how to make toggle loops/peyote bars, fringe and draped fringe, how to make a beaded bead, and also has a page on the author's delica seed bead information.
