Now you can learn how to make beautiful bracelets, earrings and necklaces using some of the best-selling bead instruction booklets in the country! Written by award-winning artist and teacher, Lillian Todaro, these invaluable guides include step-by-step, fully illustrated instructions, examples, tips, and much more. Lilly offers you a system of inter-related books and projects that takes you from the basic stitches you need all the way through the intermediate and advance techniques she invented and/or perfected to create award-winning beadwork.

Inspired by actual use in her classes, each booklet covers a specific technique used to create a project, and is easy-to-understand and learn. These instructions are not only tested and proven, they have been refined over the years to make each project an easy and enjoyable experience, no matter your level of expertise.

Lilly says, "I believe in 'beading, not reading' so text is kept to a minimum with the emphasis on BIG easy-to-follow illustrations and photos. Many of these projects, you can complete in an afternoon or weekend. And the more you bead, the faster and more proficient you will become."

Companion kits include quality components, which make it easier to create each piece and enhance the experience of learning while creating. All orders get FREE Shipping !
