One Big Beautiful Bead

My book, One Big Beautiful Bead, came out in winter 2007. I love to bead with wonderful big lampwork beads. This book tells you:

  • How to incorporate big lampwork beads into your beadweaving
  • How to design around your focal bead
  • How to finish professionally using cones instead of crimps

You can click the link below to buy the book from Amazon. If you would like an autographed copy, contact me.

More to Come
I apologize to all my friends that it has taken me so long to get my website together! I'm going to add some video tutorials and kits and some other goodies - hopefully soon! I would also like to add a question and answer section - if any of you have (beading) questions, I will try to have some answers!
