Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Nicole Peterson
This fun craft book is for girls who want to make their own jewelry. Items from craft stores, hardware stores, and even the music store can be used to create festive items. Many of these items are easy to find but difficult to recognize once they have been used for the projects because they look so good. The simple step-by-step directions are easy to understand and follow, as each step is completely illustrated and described. The book starts with a few tips and tricks to create fun things, along with a list of important supplies needed for each project. Photographs of the completed projects are included for each project. And, just like a cooking recipe, a description of the items needed to complete the project is included for each design. A total of sixteen projects is included, and most are at about the same level of difficulty. Girls who love to create projects will love this book with so many fun ideas.
