These Silver Color compilation ebooks may seem a little outdated but they contain invaluable information and remain great references for how to use silver glass especially in combination with other non-reactive (e.g., Effetre) glass, as well as various bead styles that work well with silver glass! Each picture is accompanied by the recipes the beadmaker used – some even step-by-step instructions – and will surely provide important insights! If you want to pick just one to check out, I recommend SE5 for it's the largest volume of the collection.
This booklet is a compilation of exchange beads submitted for SE9 – Ninth Silver Color How To and Exchange - on Lampwork, etc. forum. With 45 pages, there are over 110 beads with description. Each bead is accompanied by the recipe of the glasses used and some have detailed step-by-step description of how the bead was made (the level of detail is based on how much information the original beadmaker shared.)
Other content includes a list of silver glass by manufacturers and notation of the glass being striking or reducing, and index of each silver glass used in the booklet for easy reference, and a basic step-by-step (illustrated with photos) instruction on how to strike and how to reduce silver glass.
Silver glassmakers featured: ASK, BellaDona, Double Helix, Effetre, Lauscha, Precision 104, Reichenbach, StrikingColor, TAG 104, and Kugler.
