Every eye-catching photo in this superb guide to a popular craft will inspire, instruct, and attract bead- and glass-makers. It's beautiful, easy to follow, and one-of-a-kind.
Glass beadmaking has become a crafting phenomenon, and this colorful reference features a rich repertoire of creative ideas. Splashed across the splendid pages in eye-catching photos are all the most popular types of beads, accompanied by the newest, most innovative techniques. The instructions begin with the basics: how to light the torch, wind and cool the bead, and shape the glass into barrels, cones, and discs. As beadmakers' skills develop, they can expand their horizons by experimenting with enamel; using mica dust to form an iridescent sheen; and applying silver, gold, and copper leaf to layers of glass. The most advanced projects are truly remarkable, from floral and sculptural beads to beads that encase images of stars, rainbows, and faces. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.

""The Complete Book of Glass Beadmaking" is the most detailed instruction you will receive without sitting in a classroom. The directions are thought-out, clear, and have corresponding photos for almost every step. The methods learned are applicable to any bead you desire to create, and you will find limitless inspiration from the gallery -- filled with eye-catching and colorful images from the finest glass beading artists. This book is great for those new to beadmaking, but it also contains intermediate and advanced technique sections. After working your way from front to back, you will have mastered (or refreshed your memory in) everything from shaping beads, adding color and decoration, altering surfaces, making gravity and floral beads, fuming, and creating sculptural beads such as a winged heart and a spiral seashell." -- Belle Armoire Jewelry, Spring 2011 issue "Eye-opening. The photography throughout is excellent. A beautiful book." -- Library Journal
