This is by far the most attractive volume on ceramic bead-making anywhere. The 30 colourful jewellery projects are wonderfully simple and will be loved by crafters. 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 colourful glazes. The basic techniques include hand-rolling, cutting, stamping, press-molding and extruding, as well as surface embellishment. 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 and rivals any pricey boutique find. Charming photography captures the colours and textures of a festive outdoor market, making every page playful, fun and accessible.
