Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Beauty of design is the principal characteristic of these two books. Kan's historically inspired projects, although complicated, are desirable additions to anyone's jewelry case. Persistence through multiple pages of well-illustrated instructions for each project will lead crafters to stunning results. Nimri (Just for the Frill of It) specializes in recycled jewelry combined with new elements to form eye-catching contemporary pieces. More is better on her necklaces and bracelets, and her cozy nest wrapped wire ring is most unusual. Recipes for goodies are included as a bonus with each project. Public libraries will find both of these books popular with beaders.

    I love this book

    As both a jewelry designer and a collector of vintage jewelry, I love Sonya Nimri's fun and simple approach to DIY jewelry design in her new book, Beadalicious. She encourages her readers to recycle old jewelry into something fresh and new in their own style. Sonya arms them with the know-how to complete every project in the book and includes a brief education on beads, tools, jewelry findings and best of all, techniques for jewelry construction. Jewelry styles range from funky to minimalist and the simple instructions allow for beginners to complete any of the projects. My favorite designs are the 'Bohemian Wrapsody Ring' and 'Amber Drops' earrings. Infused with a sense of whimsy, many projects in the book offer related side bars with recipes for things like 'Queen Bee Soap' and 'Moroccan Mint Tea'. There is also an 'Extra Goodies' section where you can find instructions to make things like a headband made out of buttons or your own romantic beaded hair comb. This book and the fun projects inside will make gifting to your favorite people a snap!
