Another Jewelry Book Review

Venetian Glass Beads– Kathy Fox

ISBN: 978-0-87116-415-5                 21.95

This interesting book is more about the history of Venetia and Venetian beads. I am usually more interested in bead making ideas but this book gave me some historical insights about the variety of Venetian beads and how to tell real Venetian beads from fakes. It has lovely photography of places around the world and especially Venice, Italy. “Venetian Glass Beads-24 colorful jewelry projects.” is the title of this book, however it is a bit misleading as projects use Venetian beads but the construction of Venetian beads is not mentioned in this book. I had hoped that I would learn the techniques to make these age-old beads and was disappointed when this did not happen. I did enjoy the lovely pictures of the sites and kept the book due to the travel log and descriptions of the sites.
