I love experimenting with glass and coming up with new ideas, and my new book, “Glass Bead and Jewelry Projects”, is the result of this process. The book includes 15 projects to create various styles of glass beads and 15 projects to show how these beads can be incorporated into beautiful pieces of jewellery. Additionally, there is a section on lampworking basics with a special emphasis on safety and ventilation, and one describing the jewellery-making equipment you’ll have to buy and the techniques you’ll have to master.
In short, the book contains all the advice and guidance you’ll need to make your own glass beads and jewellery. It’s a ‘from soup to nuts’ guide.
The tutorials are grouped into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced to allow the reader to progress at their own speed. Having bought and studied many books on bead and jewellery making at the very beginning of my lampworking career, I have decided that the best way to show “how to” is to provide clear step-by-step photos with simple and concise explanations. The aim of this book is to give you all the information (and encouragement!) you’ll need to replicate my designs and to inspire you to experiment, to make your own ideas real.
I’ve tried to make sure that everything you’ll need is in the book. It’s packed with useful tips, every project includes all the information needed to make the bead and the jewellery piece on the photo, including reference numbers for glass used and sizes of findings etc. and as I did all the photography every illustration shows exactly what I wanted it to show!
Guys, I have put a lot of work into this book, and I hope you’ll enjoy it.
It can be ordered on Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk, but if you buy it here, from my shop, it will come signed by me. Also, if you'd like it dedicated, just let me know in your order and I'd be delighted to do it.
I aim to dispatch the book within three working days by Royal Mail.
