About the Author

Nancy Soriano developed an interest in design early as she rummaged through her mother’s jewelry box and tagged along on flea-market trips. She introduced crafting and DIY to Country Living while she served as the magazine’s editor in chief and has also served as the Publishing Director for Craft at F+W Media. She lives with her husband, her son, and her many collections—including a good amount of vintage and handmade jewelry—in a 1920s Tudor cottage near New York City.

I was amazed at the detail at the beginning of the book, including how to choose the right jewelry for your body shape. I learned quite a few things - did you know you could dye beads or other pieces? And I got a few ideas - glue buttons to earring posts and to rings for unique jewelry statements. And who would think of using pieces of candy for earrings, necklaces or hairpins? I think it would have been better in the basics to have step by step photos to illustrate the instructions. There are some techniques that would be better to learn by seeing rather than reading. Lots to inspire!

What a Fun Book.  I am always looking for books to inspire me and give me new idea's to be creative, and this book did just that. When I fist spotted it on NetGalley I thought it was such a clever and original idea, and I am very happy to have a chance to review it. The Projects are presented with easy to follow step by step instructions just like a recipe, accompanied by beautiful photographs to show the pieces from start to finish. Included is also an overview in simple jewelry making techniques that allow you to work with a variety of different materials along with plenty of helpful tips. I found that most of the projects are more suitable for kids and teens, but really there is something for everybody. Plus the techniques you learn with help you to make some of the projects more sophisticated to your liking. This is a beautifully put together book that would make an awesome present.
