Beads of Glass: The Art and the Artists
By Cindy Jenkins
Beads of Glass by Cindy Jenkins is a gorgeously illustrated and photographed book covering the glass beadmaking renaissance of the past two decades. The beads Cindy chose from so the thousands submitted are the very best and most innovative from circa 2003. Artists’ bios are included with photos of both beads and the artist. Step by step instructions with photos and illustrations showing the reader how to make the signature beads of the featured artists. This book is a wonderful coffee table book with its spectacular photos, but it is also a great instructional manual for the intermediate and advanced beadmaker who wishes to expand skills and knowledge base with new techniques. The beadmaker who successfully makes all the beads shown will be producing beads at a professional level, talent permitting.
