Synopsis

Craft colorful and unique jewelry with this Asian inspired craft book.

Bracelets embellished with Chinese floral and butterfly motifs, a gold-and-pearl lariat inspired by the fridges of a Persian carpet, and the pupular Shamballa bracelet— these are just a few of the many artful pieces you'll learn to make in this wonderful new book by DIY jewelry artist Carolyn Schulz. Suitable for novices and experienced jewelry-making experts alike, some of the projects take just a few minutes to complete, and all of them are fun and inexpensive to do. They result in jewelry that looks great and can be worn anywhere!

Most of the 33 jewelry projects in this jewelry making book use materials you can find in any craft store. The simple techniques of working with chain, beading wire, memory wire, stretch/elastic cord, cotton cord and nylon cord are all clearly explained. When combined with creatively chosen beads, they result in beautiful beaded bracelets, necklaces, earrings and rings you'll be proud to wear and give to friends.
