1000 Beads is a must have for bead lovers, art lovers and jewelry designers! 26. März 2014
Von Jean Baldridge Yates - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book, 1000 Beads, is, in one word: stellar! The juror is the very discerning and amazing art bead creator Kristina Logan. 1000 Beads is both unutterably beautiful just to look at, and, at the same time, an inspiring call to arms to create, for all beadmakers and designers.

I assure you that you will close this book with a sigh of satisfaction, no matter what kind of beads interest you. Offered here are beads (and sets of beads) made of all sorts of materials. There are glass beads, made of all the different kinds of glass,whether soda-lime soft glass, borosilicate glass, sandblasted glass...you name it! There are wool beads and other sorts of fiber beads. There are metal beads and clay beads. Also you will be seeing metal clay beads, and polymer clay beads.

Be prepared as well to see jewelry made from these beads! You are going to get to see some of the greatest artists in the world today creating and also designing not just beads, but necklaces, brooches, pendants and components(like head pins you will adore! See Elizabeth Johnson's work! LOVE!).

From the most dramatic [yet never silly] to the most serene objects and designs, the reader will be allowed to share the creation and thinking process, simply by seeing the collection in this truly remarkable book. It leaves one breathless to recognize that we all are members of a species that can make such astounding luxuriant beauty, and that even such a small thing as paper can be made into a great work of art in the right hands of a true artist (Doris Hausler, "Paper Beads").

You will recognize many of the names of those whose work graces the pages of 1000 Beads.
For example, the trailblazing Bronwen Heilman has two of her signature glass and enamel flameworked beads shown, each different and each equally hip and mindblowing, Another favorite of mine is Travis Weber whose bead titled "Sterling" is a borosilicate masterpiece. Stephanie Sersich's felted beads have all the colors of the rainbow and more and are impossible not to love.
But wait! Just turn the page (if you can pull yourself away) and you will see yet another masterpiece awaiting you! Some by less well known artists, some by artists who regularly have delighted you. All by GREAT artists.

I defy you not to exclaim aloud when a collection, piece of jewelry, or bead stirs you with wonder. I only wish I had the words to describe Becky Fairclough's "Ode to Miss Haversham", a set of beads made of soda-lime glass, enamel transfers, and cubic zirconia. One of the beads has a chandelier inside it. If you read Dickens, you just had a frisson run up your spine! This is a great set of beads!

Every sort of experience is expressed through the beads and the jewelry. There are stunning portrait beads. There are beads which look as if they were plucked directly from the ocean (Oh Patsy Evins! Thank you for the gift of seeing your "Kaleidescope Discus Fish", which has such phenomenal depth of color !). Beads of the forests, and beads of the meadows...such as the "Summer Meadow" stoneware clay bead set by Vladislav Ivanov, four lilting beauties of a style you might see as folkloric. There are creations which only have been seen in the far away galaxies of you imagination, which you will barely believe. Kathryn Guler's "Cosmic Collision Saguaro" would be in that category. How striking is that bead, with its satellite beads! Also, check out Reut Traum's really red "Electrified Bead" as well, if you like mind travel. What a trip that bead which is made of soft glass is!
Karen Lewis is represented in all her glory. Her polymer clay beads are creations of multlayered canework utilizing the collage technique, and the colors will make you swoon.

This reviewer would like to express her thanks to Kristina Logan for the amazing choices she made and for arranging this very large book so that it flows from page to page in a very elegant progression. The progression is so perfectly thought out it is never obvious. However it adds a huge amount to why this book is so great. Incidentally, you can see a few examples of Ms. Logan's own extraordinary work on the last page of the book. She is one of the great ones!

I haven't said enough about the actual designed jewelry. Partially that is because I can't SAY enough about the designed jewelry! Alisa Leticus, for one, created a necklace, "African Tree Beads" in a vivacious fuchsia, which is made of bound wax cord, polymer clay and epoxy. If you had an "event" anywhere, and you wanted to be the coolest person at the event, this is THE necklace you would want to walk in wearing. It is smashing!

Organic earrings! L.Sue Szabo has such glorious style. When you see her "Organic Pod Earrings" you will be intrigued and attracted to the integrity of her work!
Another necklace I love from this wonderful book is Kate Rothra Fleming's "Nudibranch Necklace--Flame", with its dichroic accents and the powerful organic statement that it makes.
If you love seed beads, it is impossible to take your eyes off of Adrienne Gaskell's "Jewels in a Box Necklace" which includes bead weaving and the incredibly popular kumihimo braiding. It boasts tones of matte black and shiny jet black, matte gold and shiny gold in a tour de force of charm and impact.
Are you going to be on the red carpet next year? See Erika Ferrarin's "From the Fiore: Disco D'Oro"... and be sure to wear something strapless and plunging, because this creation of earthenware clay, rubber tubing, glass, shell, silver findings, and wooden disk needs some serious room to BREATHE as you wow your admirers! How incredible is that piece!
In the mood for metal? Sally Craig has the mindfully made necklace for you. It harks of olden days; knights and armor, and yet it is perfection as well in its contemporary design.
Yu Lin Lin has made a necklace of plated copper wire which has been woven, called "Flower Garden", which is spectacular, innovative, colorful and wildly great. You have to see it to believe it.
Finally,what singular grace is to be found in Judith Lieber's "Vertebra Bracelet", composed of diamonds,
14-karat rose gold, 18-karat green gold, and 22 karat gold. Incredible.

I am unable to find a single non-worthy bead or design creation in 1000 Beads. No matter what the material, what the shape, where the inspiration comes from, Kristina Logan culled a collection which you will want to return to, over and over. This is one heck of an art book. You will learn from it, love it, and want to make things because of it. I would not be surprised if this book finds its way into the circuit of graduation gifts intended to inspire and inflame new artists heading off to art school next year. You cannot refute the magnificence you will find in this hugely satisfying, totally jawdropping book. Prepare to be embraced and drawn in. 1000 Beads, Kristina Logan, Juror, is all about WHY we love beads and jewelry! It is a great book!

Awesome catalog of beads and beads makers 2. August 2014
Von Sara Oehler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
"This dazzling gallery book celebrates the timeless art of beadmaking, with photographs of outstanding pieces selected from nearly 3000 entries submitted by artists from around the world."

The majority of my friends and family don't understand my passion for beads and beading. A book like this is perfect for the coffee table. As people flip through and see the amazing variety of art found in beads, they quickly realize that there is more to it than they ever realized.

This book is gorgeous, with crystal clear pictures of 1000 very special beads made from all sorts of materials. If you are looking for a feast for the eyes, this is the book for you!

If you are a jewelry designer, this is a great catalog of not only beads but bead makers who you can contact to purchase special art beads. Each contributing artist is listed in the back and with a quick and easy google search, you can find most of them online.

Beautiful beads,of those made of clay there were a few good ideas.
Not what I was hoping for 23. Juni 2014
Von Picky Virgo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Based on what I saw when I "Looked Inside!" I expected more photographs of finished jewelry. While the beads themselves are absolutely stunning, I've got a fairly large focal collection of my own, including several by the artists featured in this book, and was interested in getting ideas about ways to showcase them. All in all, a beautiful book but just not for me.
