Review:

"Get your hands on this book and expand your imagination as a designer. What a roaring success as a teaching accessory to expand your capabilities as a jewelry designer. This one is a complete winner." - Jean Yates "For those who are ready to dive in, this is a fun 'make it quick' book. With 49 designers sharing their beautiful creations, there are plenty of designs to choose from. So, grab your tools and get working! The clock is ticking!" - Bead Unique magazine "(30-Minute Necklaces and 30-Minute Earrings both) feature crisp photos that show even the most minute details of the pieces. I especially like the format of these books with their get set, get ready, go instructions. Get set helps you gather all the materials you’ll need for each project. Get ready lists each technique you’ll use during its creation. Go is just that – detailed, step-by-step instruction for making the design. 30-Minute Necklaces doesn’t disappoint with (its) variety of mediums and techniques. There is a design for every mood, from the playful upcycled stainless steel bobbin necklace that incorporates polymer clay from Sarah Gazia to the ornate elegance of Ann Lumsden’s butterflies. I love that the 60 projects are so unique and different to get you thinking in lots of creative directions and trying new techniques." - Craft Gossip "Wonderful! If you are looking for designs to jump-start your own creative juices, you've definitely come to the right place!" - Beading Arts

From Booklist:

Lark does have its finger on the pulse of contemporary crafts; look no further for proof than in this second-of-a-series jewelry craft collection. This book is packed with 60 necklaces, to be fashioned in a half hour or less. (Assumed here is that readers will know their wire and soldering and tool techniques, not to mention having a good familiarity with photo editing and imaging software.) Even if fingers are less than practiced in sawing, filing, planishing, and riveting, a few of the projects don’t mandate metalworking know-how. As to be expected, all feature color photographs, a list of required techniques and materials, and good step-by-step instructions with occasional variations and designer notes. Now to the design choices, which truly range from sedate to boldly twenty-first century, all using materials as disparate as green-gold pearls and 14-karat gold to recycled plastic bags and white table-tennis balls. Mark this as intended for intermediate jewelers. --Barbara Jacobs
