"Jeri L Warhaftig is already the author of one very fine Lark publication on glass bead making, so you might not think there's a need for another. Wrong! Creating Glass Beads is different in scope and design from any other how-to book I've ever seen. Jeri introduces ten beads as projects, each one covering multiple intermediate and advanced techniques, from constructing hollow beads and mirroring the insides to creating advanced stringers and trying out lapidary work. Here's the kicker: Jeri has invited fourteen project testers to try out her instructions and see what happened. The variety of styles that grow from Jeri's instructions will be inspiring to everyone who likes to color outside the lines anyway! The step-by-steps are really clear, with excellent photographs, but the message is also clear: Do what you want with these ideas!" - Beading Arts
"You will feel like you are taking a live workshop, not like you are following a book in a vacuum. This is such a great concept and it brings this book to life! This will be the future of craft how-to books -- well done, Jeri Warhaftig and Lark Crafts!" - A Fly on the Wall Reviews

At the back of the book Jeri shows us the beads that she made for each project that she didn't feel were the best ones to be published for that particular project. What THAT taught me was that in fact, she had to do the project over and over and over (remember that word, practice?) until she was satisfied with the one she liked best for the project. I was so happy to see she made wonky beads too. Oh boy, it's nice to see the good, bad and the ugly. How nice to make yourself so vulnerable for our benefit. Wow. I decided to challenge myself to do each project as if I was one of the lampworkers that Jeri had asked to participate in her book. I have done a couple of them so far - and I'm very happy with them. So happy, in fact, that I just HAD to write this review for those of you on the fence about purchasing this book. I'm showing the beads I made from her book in my blog. Go ahead - buy the book. You'll be glad you did.
