creating lampwork beads for jewelry

Hey! Karen Leonardo’s book is out.  It’s FULL of stuff too–16 different step by step lampwork projects and 14 jewelry projects. All different levels of difficulty. I wrote a mask bead tutorial that includes instructions for making murrine. The step by step pictures are quite large:

Hopefully the instructions are clear and easy to follow. I hate re- reading stuff I write so I haven’t combed through the whole thing. If you buy the book and you have any questions about my tutorials, feel free to ask.

Designer Cary Martin made an intricate silver necklace using a mask and two companion beads. Instructions for that are in the book as well. The techniques Cary uses for the mask necklace could be applied to many different jewelry designs. Same goes for all the jewelry instructions, really, and a lot of the bead instructions. It’s a diverse book and it doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. You should ask Santa or whomever for it.
