Other glass bead making how-to authors, beware! The best book on the subject has already been written. Ms. Jenkins has included beautiful photographs of beads which are sufficient inspiration to recommend her work. However, it is the detail, and detailed photos, of how to proceed with bead making that make this book an invaluable asset. For several years I have resisted the idea of making my own beads - this book has severely dented my unwillingness to embark on that aspect of my obsession with beads. Ms. Jenkins is to be congratulated for authoring such a thorough and beautiful work.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best instruction book for beginners. 6 April 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
This is the book I recommend in my glass bead making classes. There are pictures with each set of instructions so you can see, as well as read, how to do it. It covers all of the techniques necessary to make the most simple to the most complex glass bead imaginable. Definitely a "must have" book for the new (and not so new) bead maker.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, inspirational, and great instruction. 25 July 1997
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Red alert to all bead lovers - you must have this book! Soon, we'll all have little lampwork set-ups in our own garages. Cindy Jenkins gives wonderfully detailed instructions. She shows you how to set up a workshop, how to make a simple bead, and then more and more detailed beads. I never intended to do lamp-work, and just bought this book on a whim becuase the pictures were so beautiful, but after reading it, I believe I could easily get started, without any additional hands on instruction.

Cindy Jenkins has done a wonderful job with this book. It teaches you step by step from the very beginning. This book will show you what you need and where you need to get it. It will then show you how to make great beads. Numerous techniques are very well illustrated. I started out with no knoweledge of glass whatsoever, but now with the help of Cindy's book, I can make beautiful glass beads. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to get their foot in the door to the world of glass.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful and thorough reference 11 April 1998
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
Cindy Jenkin's book is truly a work of art as well as a detailed instruction guide. I was drawn to the book by it's exquisite photographs and inspired to try lampwork by the thorough explanations and instructions. I was fortunate to take a beadmaking class with Cindy and her book is a wonderful reference guide! It's so beautiful that I enhance the decor in my home by using it as a "coffee-table" book.
