Overview

Glass beadmaking has exploded in popularity—and those artists who have successfully mastered the basics want more techniques to enhance their repertoire. Jeri Warhaftig, a respected and experienced teacher, offers intermediates her time-tested, workshop-based approach to expanding their beadmaking skills. In each superbly illustrated and illuminating chapter, she focuses on using current tools, new materials, and innovative methodology to produce a singular bead—with several variations for every one. The possibilities, from sandblasting to metal inclusions, are stupendous: Craft sculptural flower beads; create a lightweight, hollow seashell-shaped bead; and go for the “wow” factor with geode beads that enclose decorative elements within a layer of glass. Helpful tips are sprinkled throughout, and a gallery of additional work will inspire.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Handmade glass beads are highly sought after and command high prices in shops; the best ones are tiny works of art. Teacher and artist Warhaftig has designed this book as a series of ten practice lessons on advanced techniques for experienced beadmakers. Each lesson includes photos of works in progress and finished beads by glass artists. General information encompasses tools and studio setup. An excellent selection for public and academic library crafts collections.
