Rich colors, abundant textures, and even an antique prosthetic eye or two become embellished works of art. Laura says the aim of this book is to 'provide knowledge and inspiration to take your beadwork to the next level by embellishing beads with yet more beads--to create a multidimensional realm of beauty and adornment, all made possible by starting with one single bead.' One gorgeous bead after another, Laura certainly creates beauty in every work." -- Craft Gossip
