I like the fact that the projects create a finished product - a necklace for example - but several of the beads are made using Boro glass (rather than soft glass) and some of the techniques used are not for the faint hearted!
Looking at the supplies lists I found a number of fairly basic errors such as incorrect quantities - one bead (Midst of the Garden) lists 6 different colours of Boro glass - and only uses one of them!
That said, I like the overall style of the book and have every intention of trying some of the techniques.
The book takes you in a really readable manner from setting up a studio to making the beads to making the beads into jewellery.
There are a number of projects in here and eack bead is photographed in the stages of making and then in the final section made up into a final jewleery piece. It also deals with making a few components such as a toggle clasp and making a PMC bead too.
A nice list of supplies and toolbox equipment needed is useful and the level of expertise needed is helpful too.
It covers bead making in a project way and not the "here's how to make a round bead, now a flowerbead, now use frit..."
My favourite is the sheep bead project and the more complex "Autumn Glow" bead.
I'm happy to see the lack of history of glass beads and pleased to see the dive straight into the setting up the workshop.
16 different beads with different techniques are covered, I'm sure it will inspire many lampworkers.
Buy it then enjoy making beads...
