Library Journal

Eclectic contemporary jewelry of all sorts is found in these two practical guides. The projects by Adelson and others require expertise in working with acrylic thermoplastics and liquid resins. Some of the finished jewelry items are reminiscent of mid-20th-century Bakelite. Barta (Hip To Stitch) uses a combination of beads and found materials to create unique necklaces. Such unlikely things as watch parts, playing cards, and printed tin containers are all raw materials for her projects. These unusual books would make good additions to public libraries.


—Constance Ashmore Fairchild
School Library Journal

Adult/High School

This reference and idea book for serious jewelry makers or beaders is beautifully laid out and gorgeously photographed. The individual projects come with instructions, but not step-by-step pictures, and the assumption is that readers have some basic skills. In the end matter, "Beading and Wireworking 101" includes descriptions of bead types, findings, stringing materials, and tools, and a short how-to section. There is a list by project of materials needed and another of sources (online and brick-and-mortar stores). Some projects require non-jewelry tools, such as an embossing heat gun. There are several interesting recycling ideas, such as using old candy or spice tins, pocket watches, lockets, or antique playing cards as the basis for new pieces. A few items use gemstones and silver, which may put them out of the price range of most teens. However, for crafters who want to create one-of-a-kind jewelry that reflects their own interests and sense of style, this is a great source of inspiration.-Sarah Flowers, Santa Clara County Library, CA

    Make original jewelry with ease

    This book has you-can't-make-a-mistake directions for the most beginning beader but the projects are sophisticated and professional. The custom pendant necklaces are straight off the shelves of your local boutique and the other designs in the book all look trendy, fresh and new. <BR/><BR/>I sell jewelry making supplies and books all day and this one appeals strongly to me.

    A Failure

    This might have been an ok book in paper. As a Nook book it is a failure. The photos which preceed each chapter are so tiny that objects are just guessed at and the text is unreadable. Thus the whole purpose of the book is foiled.
    I had hoped to buy lots of Nook crafting books, but the tiny photos are a deal breaker.
    Don't buy this Nook book.
