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 the 30 colorful jewelry projects are wonderfully simple. Nothing says love more than the flirty urban-hip ring with a metal clay arrow shot through the heart. A bohemian chic big-bead necklace mimics the look of traditional majolica. Charming photography captures the colors and textures of a festive outdoor market, making every page playful, fun, and accessible.
