The cover photograph of celebrity jewelry designer Tarantino will give readers a good idea as to whether her aesthetic suits their tastes. Those whose reaction to her candy-pink hair and bright, oversize, kitschy jewelry is "I love it!" will enjoy this book, while those who think it looks like the aftermath of an unfortunate incident in a costume jewelry factory aren't the intended audience. Tarantino provides a peek at the steps she took to get her business off the ground, the places she looks to for ideas, and simple projects that reflect her fun-loving credo. The photography is gorgeous; even the images of basic supplies look like still lifes with rhinestones. Furthermore, the projects themselves are easy enough for most crafters to attempt successfully. VERDICT Part collection of projects, part feel-good inspiration, Tarantino's print debut will appeal to those who believe that there's no such thing as too much sparkle.
