“Diane Fitzgerald's Shaped Beadwork & Beyond far exceeded my expectations. It's a comprehensive guide to creating designs with triangles, teardrops, beaded beads, bezels, and pointed ovals with a strong emphasis on peyote stitch using Japanese cylinder beads. Nearly fifty different designs are presented with clear, start-to-finish instructions and diagrams...The challenge will be deciding which one will be first.” —Leslie Frazier, Beadwork magazine 2012 Designer of the Year
