Illustrated with hundreds of how-to color photographs, this book takes the reader from the beginning to advanced stages of the remarkably versatile art of beadmaking with extreme clarity. The advantages and applications of generally used tools as well as torches provide readers with the security of a knowledgable beginning. Each glass-working technique builds on the previous one in complexity. Enhance basic forms such as barrels, discs, and cones- then learn how to make hollow beads using a wrapping method, and finally experiment with floral and sculptural beads, and murrine canes (that feature encased images like stars, flowers, and faces). Using an easy-to-follow workshop approach, Kmberley Adams covers many of the major bead making techniques, starting with the simplest methods and ending with the most advanced. From making the first bead shape, such as a cone to decorating it with surface treatments including enamel and gold leaf, she offers a complete, at-home course in this fascinating craft. You’ll refer to The Complete Book of Glass Beadmaking for years to come as your abilities develop and your interest broadens. By: Kim Adams 9x10 paper back
