    This is a terrific go-to resource for unique and creative ways to use resin.

    It covers the basics of using a wide variety of techniques such as surface treatments, creating layers for special effects, coloring, using found objects and botanical elements, creating your own bezels from unusual objects and even casting your own dimensional objects and some fabulous look-alike Druzy stones.

    Following the instructions you can achieve a broad range of color, form and texture. Each topic briefly covers what supplies and techniques work best to achieve the look you want. It also covers ways to use her new cold enamel line of products. The ideas simply explode out of this book and there are lots of them.

    This is not a book for beginners. It assumes that the reader has basic jewelry making knowledge. Some step-by-step instructions that tend to be rather abbreviated and it does not give specific instructions to copy any specific project.

    The sole purpose is to add a hefty spark to your own creativity and give you the information you need to successfully execute your own designs and for that purpose I highly recommend this book!
