I have several beading books, written in Japanese words, but with diagrams. They can be very hard to follow and take a lot of trial and error. This tutorial, with the close-up photographs, and the beads is just amazing. I appreciate it so much. I'm also very grateful that you have shareed some amazing patterns. Thanks!!
