Crystal Chic introduces readers to the basic techniques of working with hot-fix crystals, letting them explore their creative potential through step-by-step jewelry projects that incorporate a variety of materials and techniques. Projects using stamping, resin-making, polymer clay, filigree, and metal highlight other applications for crystals and teach additional jewelry-making techniques. Tips and patterns make the designs easy and accessible. Individual projects include a checkerboard crystal, a metal bat bracelet decorated with crystals, a crystal-embellished ribbon interwoven through heavy chain, and many more.
