What Others Are Saying
"Simply Bead & Wire, Simply Charms, Simply Earrings, and Simply Necklaces each contain projects pulled from one or more of Lark’s beading titles. There are so many great projects in these books that I want to run pull out my bead stash and get to work! I especially love the elongated coin charm bracelet found in Simply Charms. If your budget is tight but you need some jewelry making inspiration, take a look at these titles from Lark. The price is right for each of these books — and the finished projects look like a million bucks!" - CraftGossip

"Simply Necklaces is a book that has 23 beading projects. The first part of the book is about basic techniques to create beading jewelry. It covers bead types, making knots, simple loops, oxidizing and much more. The projects are super fun and easy to make. I am sure you will be able to find a great project in this book and use those beautiful beads you may already have in your home.Thirteen designers participated in this book." - Lorena Angulo
"This entry in Lark’s new, budget-priced 'Simply' series focuses on beaded necklaces. After a brief overview of types of beads commonly used in necklaces and basic principles of necklace design, the projects take center stage. The format is learn-as-you-go, and most of the projects involve simple stringing and eye-catching focal beads. There is one pattern that uses circular peyote stitch, and there are a few wirework patterns. As with most books of stringing patterns, it is unlikely that beaders will be able to replicate the necklaces, but the projects will inspire novice beaders who want to make their own necklaces." - Library Journal
