You'll learn about various types of beads used in the book's projects, from tiny seed beads to crystals, pressed glass, pearls, and more, as well as other materials, tools, and "treasures" that make each creation unique.

Metal Ox Moon, the author's second poetry collection, refers to her Chinese zodiac signshe was born in the Year of the Ox, and her element is metal. The poems, though, are far from metallic in character. She dubs this book a reluctant collection because of the uncertainty in her desire to have it published. Excerpt of a review of Sorrows of the Chameleon: Interesting inclusions are several haiku, senryu, tanka and a haibun, which combines haiku with travelbound prose. . . . Wagemakers succeeds in transposing her expatriate Filipina verses into exhalations of the eye, as a sigh of an insight. . . . Her mild sorrows are . . . universal, however acutely personal, and thus charming with many skins and colours. I look forward to more of her delicate poetry.

This book revises the traditional view of consciousness by claiming that Cartesianism and Descartes' dualism of mind and body should be replaced with theories from the realms of neuroscience, psychology and artificial intelligence. What people think of as the stream of consciousness is not a single, unified sequence, the author argues, but "multiple drafts" of reality composed by a computer-like "virtual machine". Dennett considers how consciousness could have evolved in human beings and confronts the classic mysteries of consciousness: the nature of introspection, the self or ego and its relation to thoughts and sensations, and the level of consciousness of non-human creatures.
