About the Author

Like so many beaders Stephanie Burnham's creative life started in another textile discipline. Stephanie was invited to teach at The Country Cross Stitcher and they are now in the 9th year of workshops for The Woburn School of Needlework. Here she teaches classes in both embroidery and beadwork from beginners to innovative and challenging techniques. Stephanie was thrilled to be chosen to teach as the Great British Bead Show held in Coventry.

With clear step-by-step instructions, all the charms are easy and fun to make.Beadworkers Guild:If you are seeking some simple inspiration, we love the new series of books from Search Press. Aimed at jewellery makers already comfortable with basic techniques, they offer simple recipes rather than step by step instructions. The projects use commercial beads that could easily be substituted for your own beaded elements. Likewise, chains and metal elements could be replaced with strands of seed beads and beaded ropes. What we like is that for GBP4.99 you get a colourful book of ideas, showing scale and balance, proportions and bead mixes to inspire your beadwork projects. If you are itching to design but not sure where to start, these pocket money priced books could be a great source of inspiration. Alternatively, if you just want some quick make projects, there are simple to follow recipes.Sew Today:Four from a new series of six booklets by different authors, featuring a whole range of funky, imaginative and contemporary crafts. Each contains twenty innovative projects, which are accompanied by easy to follow recipes and close up photography.'Bracelets' is a great introduction to jewellery making - simply link a few beautiful beads together, attach a fastening and you are finished.

Having looked through these books I can honestly say that I now have enough ideas to keep my daughter happy for quite a while!In each book there are twenty attractive designs with clear step-by-step instructions and beautiful colour photographs.

West Country Embroiderers: This book contains clear and detailed instructions to make twenty charms to hang from a handbag, keyring or almost anywhere else. All the designs are presented in two colourways with photographs of both. This book would be suitable for a beginner or for the more advanced beader, and would provide inspiration for the creation of new designs. An added bonus is that permission is given by the author for the charms to be made and sold for charity. Sheena Thomasson, Penzance
