Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A great pair of earrings - especially unique, handmade earrings - can put the perfect finishing touch on any ensemble. In Nathalie Mornu's A Bounty of Bead + Wire Earrings, 25 talented artists come together to share 50 inspired earring designs that you can recreate in your own studio. The book begins with an informative overview of the basics - including descriptions of the necessary tools and materials, an instructional section showcasing wireworking techniques, and a glossary of essential terms - and then jumps right in to the projects. The original designs featured in A Bounty of Bead + Wire Earrings run the gamut from classic styles for everyday wear to eye-catching statement pieces for special occasions, all infused with globally-inspired flair. With detailed, close-up photographs and clear diagrams, jewelry artists of all levels will be able to master even the most complex-looking earring projects with ease. If you've been seeking new inspiration for ways to use your stash of beads and wire, then A Bounty of Bead + Wire Earrings by Nathalie Mornu is one title that you must check out." - CRESCENDOh blog
 
"There is a huge assortment of designs in here, and because there were 25 different designers who created them, you get a wonderful range of styles. There is really something here for everyone, from traditional to trendy. ... This is a project driven book, and with 50 projects there is really something for everyone's tastes and personal style. There is also a range as far as difficulty. However, even the very new jewelry maker will be able to find plenty of projects to select from. Some personal favorites of mine include 'Harmony' designed by Valerie MacCarthy, 'Florentine Lace' by Cynthia Deis, and 'Pearl Bouquet' by Lisa M. Call." - About.com Jewelry Making
