The Girls' World Book of Jewelry
50 Cool Designs to MakeBook - 2004
Here is a real "jewel" of a guide that no girl can resist! From simple bead stringing to working with wire, there's a wide variety of fabulous jewelry to make, and lots of creative techniques to try. Every attractively photographed page encourages experimentation, imagination, and personal artistic expression at the same time. Imagine a bracelet made of copper washers from the hardware store or from old wooden game pieces. Add small metal flower embellishments to a ribbon for a funky choker. "Elegant" describes the glittery Illusion Necklace with sparkly beads that seem to float around the neck. Each piece is as unique and special as the girl who makes it.
