From the Back Cover:

Making Your Own Jewelry is packed with ideas for attractive, innovative and often surprisingly inexpensive jewelry to make at home. It features over 20 practical and original projects for earrings, brooches, bangles, necklaces and matching jewelry sets in a wide variety of styles and materials. These range from high-fashion, 'chunky' designs such as curtain ring earrings to a more classically ornate crystal necklace. Readymade jewelry components such as beads, semi-precious stones, pearls and shells, together with more unusual materials such as fabric, modelling materials and plastics, all find their place among the stunning designs. As the author explains, attractive jewelry can be made using everyday 'found' objects including wire links, bobbins or hat pins. Beautifully illustrated throughout with specially commissioned color photographs and step-by-step illustrations, the projects are presented clearly in easy-to-follow sequences which explain the basic jewelry techniques required to create the designs presented here.

About the Author:
