• A huge selection of gorgeous, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces from sassy - like the Victorian Temptress Choker - to sweet - like the Sea Dreamer Wrap Necklace
• An easy-to-follow skill level guide that tells you whether a project calls for the skills of a "Beading Virgin," a "Beading Vixen," or a "Beading Goddess"
• Patience Booster tips and Designer Tips to help make your beading go smoothly and to encourage you to experiment with making your own designs
