Ceramic Bead Jewelry: 30 Fired & Inspired Projects
This is by far the most attractive volume on ceramic bead-making anywhere! Crafters will eagerly snap it up to learn how they can create a variety of striking projects using low-fire clay and a rainbow of colorful glazes. The basic techniques include hand-rolling, cutting, stamping, press-molding, and extruding, as well as surface embellishment, and 30 of the colorful finished jewelry projects are wonderfully simple. Nothing says love more than the flirty urban-hip ring with a metal clay arrow shot through the heart. Mimic the look of traditional majolica with a bohemian chic big-bead necklace that rivals any pricey boutique find. Charming photography captures the colors and textures of a festive, sunny outdoor market, making every page playful, fun, and accessible!
