I started beading from a necklace kit years ago and have picked up a lot of inspirational books since then - I am a bit of an addict for craft books, magazines, etc.  But some good basic books are Mastering Beadwork, and A Beader's Companion, for basic stitches and techniques for beading with seed beads.

I know I'm late to the sushi-viewing party but I must say this is positively stunning. I don't like sushi, but I love how it looks and this looks absolutely wonderful!

I found the basic instructions in some past Bead and Button magazines - they have been on my to do list for awhile actually.

Basically, the ginger is a long strip of herringbone stitched beads, with a picot edging on the one edge.  Roll it into a rosette, and secure the base with the beading thread on the edge opposite the picot edging.

The rice balls are made with flat peyote, connected together, with some decreases to bring in the edges afterward, stuffed.  The nori wrap/rolls are peyote too.  The egg is square stitch.  The wasabi was in peyote with random increases/decreases to give an organic blobby shape.  The fish roe and the rice bottom are circular peyote, and I just freehand stitched different sized orange beads on the peyote base for the roe.  The shrimp is netting, and the rail is herringbone.  If you look at the Bead and Button site, you may be able to find the more detailed instructions - they are from either 2009 0r 2010.
