    A Different Approach to Jewelry

    As someone who loves instilling meaning into any creative endeavor, I loved what I learned in this book about the possibilities to create jewelry pieces that heal. A key is provided for each project, explaining the intent of each element and additional ideas are included for personalizing your own piece, whether it's with color, symbolism, particular metal or other natural material. I also loved the sidebar extras that offered recipes for herbal teas and other wellness tips.

    better cover than what's inside

    if you are a very creative person, you may find value in having this book around to kick start you into beginning a project. i would venture to say that even if you are inspired by some of the author's pieces, you will wind up making something that you didn't see in the book itself. it is an entertaining read, and the photography is very nice.
