I just received BarbElbe's newest book Forever in Beads and it is so full of fabulous instructions with 3 dimensional diagrams, color charts AS WELL as word charts for those who prefer them, AND for each and every design there is also fantastic instructions and diagrams to make the different fringe, and neck-straps! And I don't mean to omit the lovely earring section of the book either! Gee,I don't know how you packed so much quality into a $17.95 book Barbara but you knocked our socks off over here. You just raised the bead book bar, to. =] Mega cheers for you and may you sell out of these in record time!
Thank you so much for my copy. I'm going to show it around here to my beading friends.
Way to go Barbara!!!!
Your book Beaded Images happened to be the first that I bought. I was surely lucky to have chosen it as your instructions are very clear. I am just starting my fourth Amulet Purse and have only been doing this a little over a month. It's great fun.

Your books are stunning! I have been seeing a lot of beadwork books of late, and while most are really, really nice, yours are truly beautiful! I'm looking forward to having more time to go through them! And for doing some of the projects! The first for me will be those fabulous Hummingbird earrings!

I just purchased your "Amulet Obsession" book. (I already have "Back to Beadin"!) I have purchased a number of "beading" books and yours are by far the best I have found! I love the pictures and your instructions are clear without being too wordy. Keep up the good work! I plan to order your other 2 books in the near future.
Barbara, first I want to tell you how I love your amulet patterns!!! I have made four of them so far and have the beads lined up for the rest of them in your books. Thank you,
I have never beaded before. The Peacock kit is the best reason in this world that I can see to learn how immediately. Beautiful designs!
The first item that I ever beaded was your pattern "Bouquet" from Back to Beadin, any way with your good directions it came out beautiful and it hooked me on beading, also was finished in time for Mothers Day, and my Mom loved it. Thank you for opening new doors to me this last year.
