The Bead Dreamer (“A beautiful and thoughtful book.”)

Lorena Angulo’s blog (“A great addition to your personal library.”)

We’re giving away three first-edition copies of Creating Glass Beads signed by Jeri herself. To enter for a chance to win one of these books, leave a comment on this post by 9 p.m. EST on Sunday, April 10. Any post will do; how about telling us about any beadmaking experience you’ve had or why it interests you … or if you just want this book because it’s fascinating and gorgeous!

    Would love to have this book! Also enjoyed the Lark team profiles. To think that I lived in Asheville for 3 years and didn’t know that Lark Books was headquartered there. I was obviously not part of the jewelry ‘scene’ :) Thanks for all that you do, Lark team.

    whoa, what an awesome giveaway. I am a self taught glass bead maker and to be honest my beads need a ton of help. This book would give me a better base to grow from

    jennifer says:

    No one ever told me as a child that you can be or do whatever you want. I want to teach my children differently. Coming up on being 40, I want to design my own jewelry and make glass beads! Something I never knew existed as a child!

    Sandra Jahn says:

    I’m not that great bead maker yet. Actually, I have some pendants in my collection so far only. This books seems to be full of gorgeous ideas about beadmaking. And I’m really curious for new ideas. So it’s perfect for me.

    i just started to make my own glass beads, this would be great for my continued education is glass! thanks!

    Cathy says:

    Wow a signed book by Jeri Warhaftig, how cool that would be!!! I love glass, I love melting glass but what I love most about the glass comunity is the willingness to give and to help others. Jeri’s book would be a welcome addition to my small repitar of information as her glass is unquiely beautiful.

    Beady Eyed Woman says:

    I can’t wait to get this book! Jeri is an amazing artist and she has included many other talented people. This will be a real treat!

    I would love to win a copy of this book, the other one I saw by her was great!

    I was lucky enough to attend a Fire on the Mountain workshop in Asheville where Jerry was demonstrating. She is a generous teacher, and I have her first book as one of my main references.

    Janis Sweet Hoye says:

    I do all kinds of “up-cycling” while creating my jewelry. I always say that when I grow up I will get to use a torch and play with fire to make glass beads. Time is ticking away, I better get busy… this book looks great, can’t wait to get my hands on one!

    Cathy Bringleson says:

    Yummy! Thanks for the Giving. I need all of the help I can get.

    Scubaguy9 says:

    Glass has become a new addiction for me, this book would be a wonderful addition

    I look forward to Jeri’s book (from my Jersey home). Jeanne Cox, fellow ASGB member, is in Jeri’s book. Can’t wait to see it.


    Daria says:

    I’ve blown glass and appreciate anyone who ventures in this delicate medium. I’ve been a jeweler/metalsmith for over 30 year, who plans to incorporate glass bead making in some of my designs soon. I love the potential of adding form and color from this medium to my design aesthetic.

    Xxxmiekaxxx says:

    ooh ME! Lol! Jeri is great! I had the honor of meeting her a couple years ago and have a couple of her lovely beads:-)

    Glitzycowgirl2 says:

    Jeri makes the most beautiful beads. This book is on my wish list to get! Working with glass is the most zen thing I can do for myself and I’d really like to learn more of Jeri’s relationship with the glass. The beads on the cover of the book are very intriguing.

    Margie says:

    Saw Jeri, her beads and book at Glass Craft & Bead Expo–wonderful beadmaker, cool beads and book!

    jan says:

    I’m new at making beads and this looks like a great book.

    Rhonda says:

    I have just begun sending beads to Beads of Courage and realize that most of the beads I make are not appealing to children of that age. I seem to be stuck in a rut and would love to see if Jeri’s book can help me expand my bead-making horizon so I can begin making beads these kids would really love to put on their string.

    Karenra says:

    This looks like a wonderful book! Thank you for the chance to win it!

    Kathy says:

    The lampwork beads on the cover of the book are beautiful!!

    I have Jeri’s 1st lampwork book (signed) & it’s awesome! Not only is she a gifted lampworker, but she’s an incredible teacher. I’d be honored to win a copy of her newest book.

    tina~ says:

    This is very intriguing to me !!

    Christinecat4 says:

    Lark Books are terrific. I work at our local library and try to get as many Lark Books as possible. I really want to get into making glass beads. I’m going to start doing some twisted wire work (another Lark Book) with lampwork beads and would love to be able to make my own as they are pretty expensive when buying them from someone else. Lark Books are always well written and easy to follow.
