Creative Beading Vol. 8: The Best Projects From A Year Of Bead&Button Magazine

This volume of Creative Beading includes more than 75 projects to inspire beaders. Each of the book’s three sections, single-stitch, multi-stitch, and wirework & stringing, contains a wealth of editor-tested projects by many well-known designers. This book also includes thorough sections on basics, tools, and materials. This is one of the only book series that compiles almost every project from a year’s worth of magazines. The large number of projects this book offers, and the great quality of this hardcover book makes it a great value.

I was missing this one. I have all of these in the series except the nearly-impossible Vol. 2. I am a subscriber to the magazine, but I always purchase these because they really do present the best designs of the year in a single, easily-accessible place. I will say that it was not quite in as good of a condition as the seller portrayed - it was indeed slightly bent but also there was a chunk out of the spine. I definitely recommend getting this book if you are a fan of making jewelry.

I am a keen, self-taught beader, so this book and many previous volumes add on to my projects and ideas.I am delighted with this volume and buy every volume that comes out. There is a wide choice of projects for different skills and interests, so it makes it a very versatile book for everyone.

I liked the book, the projects in it were nice nd several were favorites from the past year. I had other favorites from the year but that is a matter of opinion. It is nice to have the book, that way I don't have to keep all of the magazines. What is also nice is that the projects are divided into categories, such as bead weaving, wire work, etc. That makes it easier to find something I want to work on. I have all of the books so far and would get future ones. Worth the money.

Wow, What a great edition. I have all 8 in the series, and I thought number 4 was really terrific, but THIS one is even better. I love that they also included bead color info for the various versions of a project. Excellent choices from the designs in the 2012 magazines. The book is pretty much a work of art and as always, the instructions a clear and complete.

I love this collection of beautiful and inspirational projects, articles and great ideas! The book is chalk full of some of the very best projects from Bead and Button magazine that are beautiful and easy to follow for both beginner to advanced beaders! Highly recommend this collection and hope that Bead and Button continues to put out these great volumes!

I have most of these annuals (except out-of-print vol. 2, why not still print that one, too?), and enjoy having so many projects in one book. I have just browsed this volume, and though there are not as many projects in this one that catch my fancy as in some past volumes, I appreciate this big book, and will look through it repeatedly, as I do the past volumes.

I buy this series each year so I don't have to look for the magazines for my favorite beading projects. All 8 volumes are in one place on the shelf, and it's fun to go back and review patterns I didn't do, but intended to.

I received this as a birthday gift. I'm very disappointed in this volume. I have almost all the Creative Beading books, so I thought this would be great. I know that there were some great projects last year, but those sure did not get into this book. It's supposed to be the BEST projects from a year of B&B. That's the title! I was deceived. Next time I will have to look at the actual book before putting it on my wishlist. I have the magazines, too, so I know. I just like to purchase these so I can have the best projects in one place. I'm really disappointed. Not sure if I will buy Volume 9 if B&B does a poor job again.
