SUMMARY- You get an interesting scattershot of beading over the last couple hundred years and a few descriptions of techniques. All the photos are in black-and-white, which hurts this book in particular. They are still nice examples and it's a fun read - just don't expect it to go into any depth(More World Book than Encyclopedia Britannica).
