My goodness! I just recieved this tutorial and it's Amazingly well done! Literally, everything you want to know about making murinni and she makes it so easy! This is a must have tutorial for beginners, intermediates and people like me who have lampworked for years. Im really impressed with the structure and well thoughtout process this tutorial takes you through. The photos tell the tale on their own. The written details take you even further and she is very giving on information. Ive made murinni before but it wasnt this easy! Its 66 pages of instructions, beautiful images and incredible recipes!

Buy this tutorial, I promise you wont be disappointed!!!

Absolutely a must-get if you make murrini! I adore the recipes in here, and the techniques are simple, but things I never would have thought of. I love the way you make different glasses work together for different effects. With all the recipes in this book, I'll never run out of ideas!

Thanks Angie, you're too kind! They seem to run around in my head (I wonder what would happen if I put this with this?) and off I go.

Once I get back out to the studio, I'll post one or two that didn't make the tutorial, since I'm still playing!

The coupon should be good through Thanksgiving, but that's *next* Thursday, not today (the 21st).

(I'm gonna buy it either way but a discount is always nice!)

Oops! Thanks Patty. I've fixed it so it will be good through next Thursday. Oh what the heck. I'll make it expire the following Monday so it's good through Thanksgiving weekend.

Thank you Rachel! I just bought the tutorial and spent a few minutes skimming through it. And I have to say WOW! My head is spinning with all these ideas. I have your first tutorial and I knew this one would be just as good!

Corina Tettinger has developed a tool for making murrini that I'm really excited about, called the Ollie Punty. If you make a lot of murrini, think you might be making a lot, or just love tools, check it out:

http://www.corinabeads.com/pages/Olliepunty.php


I had the opportunity to try these out and compare them to my home-made version. These feel great to hold and give you the needed leverage for an extra long pull! They're inexpensive -$18 - and worth every penny!
