We are very proud!! The lovely and talented Emma Baird features in the pages of a brand new book all about Lampwork.
Creative Lampwork includes everything you need to know about lampwork, from the history of the craft, to safety and materials, to various bead shapes and decorative techniques. The author, Joan Gordon, formerly Editor of Making Jewellery magazine, has gathered together 14 accomplished glassmakers from around the world to guide you safely through each technique and project, and Emma is one of them :) She has two projects in the new book, one of which takes you through all the steps to make this lampwork Bead Ring.
Emma's studio is located right here at The Little Bead Shop and she is always happy for people to watch when she is on her torch. It really is fascinating to watch.
The book isnt available yet - but will be soon!! Congratulations Emma!!!!
