As glass beads grow in popularity, so does the need to find ways to use them in jewelry designs. Art Bead Jewelry: Seasons in Glass is perfect for anyone who loves lampworked beads but doesn’t know how to incorporate them into interesting and unique jewelry designs. Rather than concentrate on making the beads themselves, author Karen Leonardo focuses on making jewelry from finished lampwork beads (which are readily available online, in bead shops, and at shows). More than two dozen pieces from noted jewelry designers are included, with the projects ranging from easy to intermediate/advanced. Featuring full-color, photographic, step-by-step directions for each project, the book explains in plain English how to make seasonally inspired necklaces with such techniques as working wire, stringing, attaching a toggle, jump ringing, using silver clay, and seed bead basics. A gallery of gorgeous examples offers inspiration to budding and advanced beaders.
I really enjoyed the step by step tutorials with pictures in this book, as well as the way they took you from simple beginner's skills to more advanced concepts with ease. I was pleased to be one of the contributors to the book where so many other fine designers and lampwork artists were featured. There were definitely some fine ideas and technics for including in my future projects. If you're considering taking up jewelry design as a hobby, the tutorials are a good place to start for the fundamentals, and if you're already a jewelry designer you'll find some beautiful eye candy and thoughtful ideas for growing your skills. Don't try to copy exactly--but let the book get your creative juices flowing, while giving you the design and technical skills to make it work! Thanks Karen for giving us a practical and lovely book on the how-to's of jewelry design with the artisan art beads we all love so much.
LOL. I am the author. I wanted another copy. Of course it is an awesome book.
While I thought the jewelry was attractive for the most part, I was *very* disappointed that there were no instructions for how to make the lampwork Art Beads USED for the "art bead jewelry." (I also own Leonardo's "Creating Lampwork Beads for Jewelry," but I did not find many beads or the jewelry very inspiring or interesting to re-create from that book.) "Art Bead Jewelry" has far more interesting lampwork beads for creating jewelry with, but no instructions.

It would have been *much better* if this book showed us how to make the lampwork art beads for use in the sets, especially since a lot of the beads used in the pictured jewelry are not "generic" styles found just anywhere. Some of the lampwork beads are a particular style for the piece and it would have been nice to know make your own lampwork bead. Given that the author knows how to instruct for lampwork, it should not have been difficult to show how they were made. Too bad; maybe next time.

8/3 ADDENDUM: To be fair, in re-reading the intent of this book, the Amazon Product Description does state that it is ... "how to incorporate [lampwork beads] into interesting and unique jewelry designs. Rather than concentrate on making the beads themselves, author Karen Leonardo focuses on making jewelry from finished lampwork beads." Also, the lampwork beads used are not necessarily Leonardo's but other jewelry designers. Still, my attention was drawn to the lampwork beads, which are the focus of the jewelry. So, while I would add another star, I would still have liked to learn how to make the unique and attractive lampwork beads.
Loved it
Nice
i JUST RECEIVED IT AND i LOVE THE SPEED THAT i GOT THE BOOK AND CONDITION AND WHAT i HAVE SEEN OF THE BOOK IT LOOK VERY INTERESTING
Very nice projects
I am a contributor to this lovely book. I was honored to be asked by the author to submit one of one ndebele necklaces. It was a challenge for me because I have never done anything like this before, but it was fun and I learned so much. This book is about integrating lampwork beads into designs. Lampwork beads are readily available on the internet and add such depth to any piece. I have been designing for several years now use lampwork beads in all of my pieces. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn to make jewelry, especially to those who enjoy unique looks-one of a kind pieces.
