Bead of the Week

glass redThis is a set of red glass beads and pendant for your matching earring/necklace designs. The earring beads (approx. 1 mm. long) consist of clear red glass set in gold oval frames. My understanding is that these are vintage, from the 1950's. The pendant (approx. 1" long and 1 mm. wide) is of blown glass with gold and other elements, with a generous horizontal hole (through the red section), ready for stringing. This is not vintage, but it is beautifully handcrafted, and it goes so nicely with these beads that we are offering it as a set for your jewelry designs.

Passing the Flame

This gorgeous book by Corrina Tettinger takes artisans step-by-step through the craft of making all kinds of exquisite lampworked beads -- from details on recommended equipment and supplies, to the universe of glass beads that have been designed and that are still waiting for the imaginative artist to interpret and create.  I highly recommend it for not only artisans and beadmakers, but for anyone who would like to know more about how beautiful glass beads are made.
