Book description from Amazon.com
This is a pretty good book for beginners. It has many of the basics for wire wrapping, beading, stitches, and loom work. Lots of valuable information about beads, vintage beads, cords, wire, thread, and the tools of the trade. I’m sure I’ll be referring to this book for years to come.
