passing the flame2This beautiful book by Corrina Tettinger takes artisans or prospective artisans step by step through the process of making lampwork beads. As mentioned in my last blog on wedding cake beads, the book was recommended to me by a very talented beadmaker from the Institute of American Indian Arts. I highly recommend the book, if only to study the incredible range of lampwork beads. You can usually find both used and new copies on

I am a lampworker and I agree that this is a wonderful book. Corina is also a wonderfully generous teacher. I recently took a 2 day workshop with her and I learned so much! A very talented woman and very personable too!
