Review- UNIQUELY YOURS - About.com Beadwork Site

Uniquely Yours Suzanne Cooper, 1999
Suzanne Cooper, Inc.
8 1/2 X 11, paperbound, 31 pages, color photos and graphs. $19.95

Alright everybody, get out the beads! A book full of great bags, some round, some with cool elements, all with fantastic designs.

This volume is less tutorial that the first volume by Suzanne, but there are complete instuctions for each individual bag. Some favorites: the Violet, the Orca, the Hearts Entwined round bag and the Carosel round bag. Also, be sure to see the Nymph & Her Beads ( a classic) and the stunning Stained Glass inspired bags; Rose, Iris and the Butterfly. Oh, and don't miss the Twisted Fringe tutorial onPage 26, it's a gem!

An unforgettable colletion, a must for the serious beader.

Review- UNIQUELY YOURS - Bead & Button - August, 1997

Uniquely Yours will stretch your imagination and fire your enthusiasm, but it won't get you started. Although Suzanne offers tips on some of her 24 innovative amulet purses, the beginning beader will look in vain for instructions on tubular peyote and purse construction. If this is your first project you'll want to use a basic text such as B&B #4 with your copy of this book. But it's worth the trouble. Suzanne uses short rows of flat peyote to redefine the standard shape of amulet purses. Rose buds and irises push up above the top of two designs, and the tail of a dragon flails up then curls around the side of another purse. The skirt of the nymph and the tail of Ms. Lizzie Lizard extend into the fringe. Suzanne does not list color numbers for the beads in the examples, encouraging beaders to try their own variations. She charts color alternatives for many of the designs and for others shows variations by experienced beaders. Suzanne also believes too much fringe is almost enough, evident in the elaborate fringes on each purse. There are enough ideas here to see you through several seasons of beading.

Review- UNIQUELY YOURS - Copper Coyote Ltd

Suzanne does it again with a wonderful collection of 24 new amulet bag designs. She has given the reader design options and suggestions to make each bag "Uniquely Yours," and included photographs next to each design graph. Another winner!
