Overview

BLINGY, BLINGIER, BLINGIEST! DO YOU WANT A DESIGNER LOOK THAT IS ALL YOURS— AND TO EXPRESS YOUR CREATIVITY AND HAVE SOME FUN?

All that glitters doesn’t have to be gold . . . and diamonds (even the fake ones!) can be a girl’s— or a boy’s—best friend. With Mark Montano’s step-by-step guidance you, too, can let loose your inner fashionista and make fabulous, unique accessories to complement your entire wardrobe!

Think outside the box when it comes to materials, and check through your recycling to find treasures In the Bin. Show people your New Mexico style, and make a papier-mâché Zigzag Turquoise Cuff out of newspaper. When the plastic store bags start crawling out from under the sink, tame them with a Fused Plastic Flower Cuff. Make the tree-mendous Nature’s Bling Bag decorated with branches sliced thin. Or Twine Not try the hardware store for some colored twine—and pick up some aluminum flashing to find out why Tin Is “In”? From punk to retro, from bobby pins to safety pins, with more than 150 projects there’s something for everyone, whether you want to glam it up Hollywood-style or go ultra-sophisticated like a newly crowned princess.

    I got this book at a book signing and have not put it down! I have made several of the gorgeous projects and Mark's instructions and beautiful photos make it easy to follow along and complete with pride. I'm not sure how many times I have bought a book only to have half done projects sitting in a closet because the instructions were not clear! Mark makes it easy to get a project done! I even purchased the Fuseworks microwave glass kiln he recommends in the book and the finished products are amazing! I totally recommend this book if you are a lover of all things BLING!

    The 80's Revisited

    I am so so sorry that I wasted almost $15 on this book. If you working with wood, leather and other odd materials and if you like the cheap look of tacky jewelry, you might like this. I consider the created products on these pages as worthless garbage.

    I got the book at Mark's book launch party, and it's just fantabulous. So many great jewelry projects, that you can't go wrong. The photographs are beautiful, the projects are unique, and Mark is great at explaining how to make the best, most creative jewelry projects you would have never thought of yourself. I definitely need to pick up one of those glass kilns. Definitely worth it if you like making your own jewelry. LOVE this book!
