Hi Nannette, Many beadmakers have learned on their own (myself
included) from Cindy Jenkins’s book, “Making Glass Beads”. She shows
each technique from the very simple to the more complex step by step.
Cindy also sells glass bead making supplies and developed the
excellent hot head torch which revolutionized glass beadmaking at
home. Her book can be obtained from Amazon or even Barnes and Noble.
For more bead making you can check www.ISGB.org the
website of the International Society of Glass Beadmakers. They have a
chat room also. Patti
