This is a step by step EBook tutorial, giving instructions on how to make a glass/lampwork tree bead. The tutorial gives instructions, recipes and lots of photographs for the construction of the three tree beads shown.
There is also a small gallery with other tree beads for your inspiration.
The glass used is all COE 104, and is easy to obtain. The tools needed are all basic lampwork tools along with a press of some kind to give you a fairly flat surface to create the tree on.
The tutorial has 41 pages and 68 photographs, plus the gallery photographs. It is approx. 1.24 MB in size, and will require an Adobe Acrobat Reader to open.
This tutorial is intended for intermediate to advanced lampworker skills, however a beginner with a bit of experience should find the information useful. Because this tutorial is in digital format, there will be no refunds or returns. If you have any questions about this tutorial, please ask them before purchasing.
Please include the email address you wish this tutorial sent to in the comments/message section, and I will get this tutorial out to you as soon as possible. (I am in British Columbia, Canada, so please allow for any time difference.)
The beads shown in the listing are not included for sale - just the EBook tutorial.
I will ship items within 2 to 3 business days of receiving a cleared payment (usually the next day). I ship my beads in bubble wrap and kraft envelope, so your beads will arrive safely. I ship within Canada by O/S letter and to the US by LightPacket. Shipping usually costs more than what I charge, however I am "absorbing" the balance for now. If you are purchasing from outside Canada/USA please contact me for a quote on shipping. Shipping from Canada can sometimes take 3 - 4 weeks, but quite often will be only 2 weeks.
Payment is due within 2 days unless you have made other arrangements with me. At this time I am only accepting Paypal payments.
Returns & exchanges
I want you to be happy with your purchase - if you are not happy, then I'm not happy! If for any reason you are not satisfied, then please contact me so we can work out a solution that will make us both happy. Returned items will not be re-imbursed for the shipping.
