Book on making glass beads?

My mother is interested in a book on making beads out of glass. She's an
avid crafter, but has never worked in glass before. Does anyone have a
suggestion?

Annika,

Look up "More Than You Ever Wanted to Know About Glass Beadmaking", by
James Kervin.  It is sold by most suppliers of glass beadmaking and glass
blowing equipment and supplies.

Annika,
The book that Roger suggested is excellent.  It is a truly definative
book on glass bead making.  It has many technical charts and
information, but also practical info on winding, etc.  There are many
excellent illustrations.  This used in conjunction with any video
should give you  a very clear picture.  The book is pricey at $40.00
plus post, but it is truly worth the price.
