This is not a how-to book. It is a valuable resource that provides hours of inspirational reading. A must for any beginning to serious beadmaker. The artists and beads showcased in this book are the very best in contemporary glass beadmaking. 1000 dazzling and unique examples by an international array of Lampworkers. This color survey has it all: the beads come single or multiples, jewelry or sculptural pieces, flameworked and kiln formed; and their diversity and beauty are amazing. Julia Skops intriguing Secret Surprise showcases clear glass beads with millifiori slices at the ends. Bruce St. John crafts his beads out of dichroic glass, then fuses and coldworks them at the lapidary well after completion. Nebula Black Necklace, from Rene Roberts, features an organic-looking focal bead adorned with fine metal leaf, glass shards, and a subtle dot decoration. An artist's comment and detail image accompany many of the photos.
