This collection of projects inspired by myth, symbolism, religion, and personal beliefs is designed for beaders and artists interested in imbuing their work with meaning. The 26 designs range from necklaces and bracelets to wall hangings, bags, an heirloom box, and even a mobile. Each piece has a distinct focus and specific purpose that is elaborated on by its designer, who writes about the significance beading plays in his or her life. The designs are divided into chapters focusing on different aspects: protection, healing, strength, good fortune, prayer, bonding, and remembrance. A wide range of techniques is offered for beadworkers, with some as basic as knotting, seed beading, peyote stitch, brick stitch, ladder stitch, and bead embroidery stitches. More specialized techniques include bead weaving, beading on screen, and painting on glass. Beyond the projects inside, this guide is a starting point for an artist's own creativity and self-expression.

The introductory chapters present the basic beading and assembly techniques, illustrated with clear, digitally rendered, and color-coded drawings.

Back in the car and heading to Joe’s place, Joe noticed a Bible sitting between them in the seat. Grace detected his glance: “Do you read the Good Book often?” she asked Joe. “No ma’am; not since I was a little boy,” Joe replied through a yawn. “Well, if you don’t have one you can have mine,” she told him with a cheery grin. Joe was bemused. “No, that’s okay. I have one. My mom got it for me when I was six years old.” Grace looked at him. “And you still have it? That’s amazing.” Joe didn’t understand what was so amazing about it. “It’s in a box somewhere.” They were pulling into the apartment complex as Grace said, “I learn something new about God every time I read the Word.” Undoing his seatbelt Joe mumbled, “I know all I need to know about God.” Joe Morgan wakes up from nightmares about the day in church when he was ten years old and the pastor yelled about a sin that can’t be forgiven. Since then, he has left the idea of God far behind, much more concerned with taking care of his self than with running after a Being who damns His creatures to hell. Joe lives the small town life, going to the same bar after work every week with his friend Ray and holding back his feelings for his coworker, Nicole. He’s too caught up in the relationship they already have to risk pushing it into romance. What Joe doesn’t know is that everything is about to change—what he thinks about Nicole, about himself and most of all, about God. How can a stolen truck and two men in the hospital change Joe’s humdrum life? Read Tortured Soul to find out.
