    Designing Jewelry with Semiprecious Beads by Kim Gover, is a lovely inspirational book by a friend of mine. The projects take you through the steps and guide you by giving colour combination options.

    (I have it for sale on my website with a free postage special offer at the moment.)

    There are as you say, many books available and not all of them are aimed at the beginner.
    Some of the monthly journals, such as Making Jewellery, have a selection of varied projects that can be undertaken by someone who is just starting to make their own jewellery and this particular magazine is great for fashion and colour trends too.

      Hi June,
      I'm not familiar enough with the books to recommend a particular one, but there will be plenty available. Libraries often have a few, if you wanted to have a look before buying.

      There's also 4 beading magazines now, Bead, Beads & Beyond, Make Jewellery and Making Jewellery. They have a section on basic techniques, and some of them are available in supermarkets.
