New and better than before – the same great material repackaged into a new, interactive tutorial. This tutorial was created with Adobe Acrobat 9. If you do not have Acrobat 9 Reader installed yet on your computer, you should be prompted to download it the first time you open From Bottle to Bead. You can also visit the Adobe website at www.adobe.com to download the free Acrobat Reader.

This tutorial includes clear step-by-step instructions for harvesting bottle glass for lampworking and what to expect when you work with it – all set up for easy computer viewing. I’ve also set up an interactive gallery of many of the bottle beads I’ve made from old bottles and broken glassware.

Safety tips, instructions on how to use a glass cutter and an annealing schedule for bottle glass are provided as separate, viewable and printable reference sheets for you to take to your studio.

Whether you are seeking “green” materials, cheap resources or are simply curious, I believe you will find my tutorial helpful. “From Bottle to Bead” will not teach you lampworking basics; I assume that you are familiar with the equipment and know how to create at least a simple lampwork bead.

Your tutorial will be emailed to you in PDF format after payment, and I’ll always be available by convo if you have additional questions. Unless you request otherwise, I’ll email Bottle to Bead to your PayPal address.
