The Art of Bead Embroidery - Japanese Style

This book is first and foremost a tribute  to master bead embroidery artist , Reiko Matsukawa, now retired, who dedicated more than 50 years of her career to developing and teaching  Japanese Style Bead Embroidery. It aims to continue her legacy and  pass on the high  standards and traditions that she has brought to the Art of Japanese Style Bead Embroidery. It also encompasses aspects of my personal experience and approach as a long time practitioner of Chinese Art Embroidery and traditional Japanese Embroidery.
