School Library Journal
Gr 5-8-A lively introduction provides useful information for those embarking on a new hobby or more experienced crafters interested in honing their skills. There are helpful descriptions of jewelry hardware, essential tools, glues and adhesives, and must-have craft supplies, as well as ideas about where to purchase these materials. A spread on basic techniques explains how to work with cord and elastic, glue, rings/pins, etc. The projects, which range from necklaces to key chains to hair accessories, are divided into sections with catchy headings ("Groovy Girl," "Out & About," "Gettin' Glam," and "Fun Lovin'"). Each one includes a materials list and step-by-step directions illustrated with full-color photographs. Helpful hints are scattered throughout. Adult assistance is suggested for some activities (e.g., those involving oven use). Templates and a resources list (stores, outlets, Web sites) are appended. The mix of colorful photographs, full-page paintings of stylishly dressed youngsters, and varied typefaces makes for an attractive layout. Packed full of wonderful ideas, this irresistible title will be popular with young crafters as well as with adults who plan craft programs.-Augusta R.
