Review:

“This collection features 50 different necklace designs from a variety of designers and focuses on beads and wire in jewelry design. For most of the projects, only basic wire-working supplies and techniques are used, and the basics are fully explained. The step-by-step directions include helpful illustrations and photographs for many of the steps. Styles range from simple and streamlined to extravagant and over-the-top, and, in most cases, swapping out the color or style of beads used will change the entire look. VERDICT: With 50 projects in a variety of styles, there is something to suit most tastes--and many of the projects are easier to create than they may seem.” --Library Journal "A great book full of fun projects for any experience level. It combines the basics with some fun twists. Make fast, fun and sometimes quirky necklaces for yourself or friends, and for presents (you can give) the book itself or pieces made from the book!" --Scorpio Moon Jewelry
