SUMMARY- The clay section is fairly brief - there are quite a few books out there with a lot more to offer in clay bead making. But this book covers other interesting disciplines as well(also briefly), including rose petal beads(in the aromatics section) - something I remember making as a kid for potpourris. Quite a few interesting techniques are provided.
