Sea Glass Jewelry – Book Review

Blogged under Good Books by Tammy on Saturday 23 August 2014 at 11:29 am

Sea Glass Jewelry: Create Beautiful and Unique Designs from Beach-Found Treasures by Lindsay Furber and Mary Beth Beuke is published by Ulysses Press and retails for $14.95 in the US and $17.50 in Canada. A little over one hundred pages, this paperback has lots of full-color photographs of beautiful sea glass. In fact, the photographs are definitely a highlight of the book.

While there are sea glass jewelry how-to projects in this book, it is not just about how to make jewelry but a general reference book about sea glass. It discusses the different types of glass and origins. It really is a book for collectors, not just jewelry makers.

That said, it would have been nice to see a few more projects. There are 9 projects in the book. Each project includes detailed step-by-step written directions and accompanying color photos of many of the steps. There is also a chapter on the tools used for the various projects.

While I was not overwhelmed by this book, I think it is a good starting place for anyone who loves collecting sea glass and would like to turn some of her/his collection in wearable jewelry pieces.
