Glass Beads is one of the best resources for those beginning to make glass beads to the intermediate beader. It gives a brief History of Beads first, followed by the Tools and Materials needed. Next are the Basic Skills and Bead Shapes. The Projects begin on page 53 and give a lovely variety in techniques from Petal beads, Poked Dots, Harlequin, Raised Petals, Twisting, Raking, and Feathering. It even includes Batik Beads with Silver Stringers and Hollow Eye Beads. An excellent book for those who would like to learn more about making and designing their own Glass Beads.
