Item details

Think Pink is an E-Book for lampworkers (glass beadmakers), all about one of my favorite glass colors: Rubino Oro.

Rubino, a gorgeous transparent fuchsia which is also a highly reactive glass, can be used in different ways to produce a multitude of effects.

The book is divided into four sections. In the first part, you will find loads of information about Rubino Oro and tips on how to work with it. The second section, Ideas and Inspiration, contains many photos and descriptions of various techniques I have worked with over the past couple of years. The third and fourth sections are full step-by-step tutorials for two of my signature styles: the Flower Child Bead and the Barbie Bling Bead.


The E-book is in PDF format. It is 43 pages long, and contains over 130 high-quality color photos. File size is 3.53MB.

The file is now downloadable through Etsy. If you have any trouble downloading after purchase, please contact me.


Please Note: This E-book is not intended for beginner lampworkers. It does not cover basic beadmaking techniques.
It is assumed that you have knowledge and experience in basic making and shaping of beads, pulling stringers and using them, dot placement, encasing and basic cane-pulling techniques.

The glass referred to and demonstrated with throughout the E-book is all COE-104 - mainly Effetre, Vetrofond and Lauscha. You can try the techniques out with other COEs at your own risk.
