The instructions (and items to purchase list) were extremely easy to follow and had large pictures to accompany each step in case you become confused. The pictures were bright, clear and focused on the exact step you were at. She also includes helpful tips in case you want to change-up beads, combinations or techniques, as well as references to where in the book certain techniques are mentioned in further detail.
The book comes in a soft, paperback format which was perfect when I headed to our local craft store to pick up supplies. I could easily mark off pages for easy reference, pull it out and compare products. It was light so I never felt weighted down in store.

The book was fantastic, easy to follow with incredible designs that you will love to wear.
