PDF Tutorials on Etsy

Lampwork glass bead tutorials by Laura Sparling

Between 2009 and 2011 I wrote a few lampwork glass beadmaking tutorials. I sold some of these as PDFs on my website but I stopped doing so years ago. Not a week goes by where I don't receive an email from someone asking if they can buy one of my tutorials so I've decided to put them for sale on Etsy.

The tutorials are for my ‘Cupcake’ beads, my ‘Roly Poly’ lentils and my ‘Flurry’ implosion beads. The latter are what have now morphed into my ‘Anemone’ beads but the technique is the same.

The PDF tutorials are the original files from 2009 to 2011. They are still perfectly readable and the pictures are clear. (Except for a couple in the Roly Poly one; 2009 digital cameras were quite naff but the couple of photos that are a tad blurry are not crucial ones.) The PDFs are slightly outdated in that some of the exact glass and tools I used may now be unavailable but that shouldn't be an issue. Please note that I can no longer guarantee the email assistance offered at the end of each tutorial.

The PDFs are only available on Etsy and they are £3.50 each plus VAT.
