1000 Glass Beads: Innovation & Imagination in Contemporary Glass Beadmaking (500 Series) Reviews
Lovely, inspirational book. Some of the beads in this book are absolutely unbelievably beautiful. So far, I haven't gotten tired of looking at them every so often. I will see details I missed the first or second time I looked at it.
Beautiful book purchased for color inspiration!
Just beautiful and worth it for inspiration.
Love this book!
Wow, what an amazing book! Whether you love glass beads and lampwork or you just love beautiful art, I believe you will be thrilled with this book. This book is definitely not a 'how to' book for those who want to make beads, but it is sure to inspire you beyond your imagination. There are over 400 pages in this book with very little text, however each page contains one or two, large, full color, highly detailed photos with a caption giving you the name of the artist and a very brief description of their technique. There are hundreds of different artists featured in the book with just as many different styles.... and these are not merely 'glass beads', these are absolute works of art which left me in awe every time I turned the page. (By the way, the price of the book definitely belies the quality, I honestly was not expecting such a high caliber book for this price.)
As a beginner in making glass beads, I am inspired by the variety and complexity of the beads shown in beautiful photos in this book. I hope I can just begin to create some beads one tenth as beautiful as some of these.
