Those Bad Bad Beads by Virginia Blakelock is a hard to find classic. It covers: how to construct a beading loom, weaving techniques, finishing and fringes, making necklaces, bracelets and belts, peyote stitch, african beading techniques, broad collars, bead netting, beading on clothing, and beaded bags.

I have a copy available now on eBay. I also have some other hard to find beading books, and some hard to find doll patterns, such as patterns by Ellise Peeples. Plus some awesome zines!

I am struggling to make this post interesting, though the truth is I have a cold and am about to crawl under the covers with a book. I actually did paint a little today and shall soon have some new art to show you.
