Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A great collection of necklace projects that are easy, fun and can be fiddled with to easily be made your own. I was immediately inspired! There are projects for everyone in this book—beginners to advanced—and they are really great projects, trendy and eye-catching. The photography rocks, and my favorite is Candie's little sketches for a few of the designs. It's an all-around great book. You should go get one.” —Lorelei Eurto, author of Bohemian-Inspired Jewelry
 
“Highly recommended! Candie has brought design lessons and techniques to school us on all things necklace-related. The projects range from simple designs for a beginner to complex multi-layered and collaged designs that are signature Candie Cooper pieces. The author offers design alternatives and suggestions to push the reader to explore their own ideas and shares her sketches of her designs. Candie brings on the DIY for clever ways to customize your jewelry and components throughout the book. Pull out your bead stash and see what you can come up with, with Necklaceology as your guide.” —Heather Powers, author of Jewelry Designs from Nature
 
“There are some cool techniques in here that I haven't tried before--like using a pearl knotter and making epoxy clay beads. Candie's a great teacher. I've met her, and her upbeat personality and give-it-a-try spirit really come through in this book.” —Anastasia Bosakowski, Crafter's Choice
 
“What a beautiful and original book! A wonderful guide to have. ” —Chicago Metal Arts Guild blog
 
“Includes 40 fun projects and tons of inspiration! Stylish and fun to make, there's something for every aesthetic in these diverse projects. If you are familiar with either of Candie's best-selling books Metalworking 101 for Beaders or Felted Jewelry, then you know what a delightful designer and instructor she is. As with all Lark books, this one has easy-to-follow photos and detailed instructions.” —Craft Gossip
 
"A fun and fanciful addition to any crafting library! This book combines inspiration from many old cultures and time periods, along with the wholly contemporary urge to recycle and reclaim, to produce 40 projects for necklace design that allow for the use of found objects, mismatched beads and findings, and everyday items. After the normal first several pages listing tools, materials and techniques, the projects are furthered with step-by-step instructions and photos along with reproductions of the
author's own sketches for almost every piece. This is a well-laid out and concise approach to getting your feet wet as a novice or pushing your boundaries as an old hand." —Scorpio Moon Jewelry

    It has its purpose for designers

    The book is well photographed, and my main purpose for keeping it is idea stimulation and to remind myself "how" certain elements look and work together (bad & good).....but, this is not an "in-depth" work on complex assemblage and design.....it's a very basic, "beginner" type of book.....it's nice, but not a real essential "must have" for one's library.
