Book review: The Beaded Edge

The exquisite designs in The Beaded Edge by Midori Nishida are perfect for finishing and embellishing needlework projects. Crazy-quilters, in particular, will go mad for these delicate, sumptuous adornments. If you don’t yet crochet, this book will motivate you to get started.

The front of the book showcases each design with stunning photos of the stages of the process, the finished design, and a practical application. Possibilities range from a butterfly hatband to a berry necklace to a sparkling border for a bridal veil. The back of the book offers basics such as tools and materials plus instructions and diagrams for each edging.

The Beaded Edge retails for US$17.95. ISBN 978-1-59668-300-6.
