Create Jewelry: Glass by Marlene Blessing and Jamie Hogsett rounds out a 4 part book series that I have thoroughly enjoyed. I fancy myself to have a pretty good eye when it comes to glass, having spent the past 10 years in the beading glass community. Mike and Scott really got their start through local bead stores as well as through many loyal and loving lampwork artists that have used our products to string their beads for many years. Most glass artists love our .024/Heavy diameter wire because they can feel secure that their beads, once strung, will not break, dropping their bead to crack or break. Marlene and Jamie used many different types of glass, from seed beads all the way to fancy, handmade, lampwork beads. Jamie has some really fascinating and absolutely beautiful designs in this book.

From the back cover: "Jewelry making and beaders love working with glass beads for their versatility, affordability, and ability to be used in a combination of techniques. From tiny seed beads to eye-catching focal beads, glass takes many forms - clear, transparent, opaque, vibrantly colored, shiny, or matte. From sassy, elegant, dressy, or flirty, Create Jewelry: Glass presents timeless, glamorous projects incorporating glass beads in every form."

This book offers:
  • 20+ beautiful and innovative designs
  • Techniques including stringing and wire working
  • Intriguing anecdotes, history, and tips about glass beads
