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

Jennifer Heynen is a member of several bead societies and an active participant in national bead shows in America. She has also been featured on HGTV's "That's Clever."From Booklist:
Practicality is the theme here; instead of, for example, advocating the purchase of an expensive kiln and other equipment, the author recommends asking to share space with a local studio, yielding a much smaller payout. About half of her book demonstrates the fundamentals: tools and materials and the making, decorating, and firing (bisque as well as glaze) of beads, along with techniques, like raku, metal clay, and luster, among others. Then on to the 30 projects, ranging from a boyfriend black-and-white bead on a cord necklace to an elaborate autumn-bounty (with acorns and leaves) necklace, with rings, brooches, and bracelets well represented in the projects. Each design includes the requisite list, color photographs, and instructions (though not labeled by level of difficulty). A velveteen cuff is studded with ceramic beads for a luxurious impact; a multistrand bracelet, on the other hand, is fairly straightforward and middle of the road. --Barbara Jacobs
