I've found that I do some of my best learning from books. So, there is a new one that I've read recently and would like to blab about.
If you are at all interested in getting beads onto your fiberworks, I highly recommend the brand new book EMBEADERY by Margaret Ball. You can order it from her at: http://www.flameweaver.com/embeadery.html
She knows her stuff, the directions are clear, and the pictures actually help you figure out what you are doing!
Oh and she has a great blog too, with lots of examples of her wonderful art: Fiber Fantasies
Also, check out her tip page with good instructions on how to make face cabochons and other stuff too.
