I have my work included in this book on page 47 & 56.  I also enjoyed reading the manuscript before it went to print, offering some suggestions.  Deanna's book is a must have for any beadmaker that needs tips on bead making and encasing. 

"Bead Review 2005
honors the world’s glass bead artists and shares the fruits of their labor – their beads."  (Quote by the authors) 

 I was included again in the Bead Review Book 2 and book 3.  The book contained the best beads and sets for 2006 and 2007.

I have a focal bead and a set included in book 2 and my aquarium beads in Book 3.   

I feel very honored and thankful to have been included in this book for 3 years in a row.  The bead below can be found in the Bead Review 2005, The Years Exceptional Art Glass Beads.  The book can be purchased at http://www.artofbeadmaking.com/br_2005.html

 They are less then 2 inches tall!  The beads are much smaller then they look.   The detail is achieved with many canes that I spend hours creating before I even start the bead.  I especially spend time on creating intricate stamens for each flower.  While making the bead, I encase  very slowly with clear to avoid bubbles and scum.  I take my time while creating each bead, striving to get as close to perfection as possible.  I will be posting more beads soon with very intricate flower canes combined into my beads.    Stay tuned..............                             |  |  | Favorite Links |  |  |  |
