Incredible Book - Very clear concise and detailed instruction! This is the only book that shows you how to make glass beads with a two gas torch like the Minor Burner.
Lots of How -To. It has many pictures of great beads.
Beadmaker and author Corina Tettinger says she wanted Passing the Flame to “bring the teacher into your house.” Tettinger’s chatty writing style gives the reader that “teacher effect,” making the book very user-friendly. The instructions are easy to understand, and colorful photos throughout the book provide a visual feast. Photos show every step of the beadmaking process in detail, including incorporating it into jewelry. The format of the book makes it easy to keep open on the workbench while following along and exploring techniques.
In her foreword, Tettinger asks “Are you going to learn everything there is to know about beadmaking in this book?” She answers, “Hell no.” Tettinger’s designs are based on techniques that have been used for centuries — mainly dots and lines. It’s her precision, color choices, and particular combinations of these techniques that make her work unique. Because her techniques are both basic and innovative, a beginning beadmaker will get a good foundation with Tettinger’s book, and one with more experience will find plenty of new ideas and inspiration.
