Knotted necklaces look great when combined with beautiful ceramic, metal or wooden beads. Just one knot with several semi-precious beads is stunning. Once the techniques are mastered, designs can be as extravagent, or as simple as you want - no specialist equipment is required and no special skills. This book includes detailed step-by-step photographs, accompanying diagrams, helpful advice and inspirational projects.
Reviews about Ornamental Knots for Beaded Jewellery: New Knots, New Projects, New Designs (7):
Saberblade
There are a lot of design and creative projects. But if you are like me and want to focus on one section you might be wasting your money. It is a good book to expand your skills or for those to see what is out there. But it has a lot and can be overwhelming. I don't do wire but there are lots of projects the uses wires and chains. So it may be difficult to complete projects unless you plan to buy all the materials used in the book. I use it more to look for inspiration and ideas to create my own projects. A good read and nice pictures.

Ms. Millodot did another nice job of laying out cool knots you can use with larger beads. Nicely photographed and the instructions are good. The projects range from easy to a bit difficult- not necessarily difficult in skill per se- but you need concentration and patience.

I use her books in tandem with kumihimo and braiding guides from Jacqui Carey.

I was looking for a book to add something extra to my jewelry designing. This book helped a little, but was not exactly what I was looking for.

I have Suzen's other knotwork books Chinese Knots for Beaded Jewellery and Celtic Knots for Beaded Jewellery and this one is just as great or better. She shows how to incorporate knots from both the Chinese and Celtic traditions into new and interesting pieces, as well as presenting several new knots to play with. As always, the steps are written clearly, and everything is photographed beautifully. Having chatted with the author on several occasions, I know that she is passionate about knotwork, and that passion really comes through in her books.

If have found this book to be a great source for learning some decorative knots and how to tie them. The instructions are easy to follow and Susan Millodot provides great examples of how to use the knots in conjunction with beads to create some nice jewelry. This is the first book of hers I bought. I'll be buying the others as well. If you want to learn to tie decorative knots for jewelry or just for fun, I would recommend this book.
I wish you could see more of the inside of books on Amazon before buying because I definitely would NOT have bought this book if I could have see the designs ahead of time. These designs are not to my taste at all - TOO GAUDY!! I prefer simpler designs than these. Maybe these designs are to other people's taste, but unfortunately they are not to mine.
