As you know I have just started making jewellry
and I was really excited to receive this book.

This book has brought together 10 talented designers
to offer you a beautiful mix
of jewellery that you will love to show off.

The book is ideal for beginners to more experienced 
Each of the jewellry pieces is shown in step by step
instruction with full picture guides and
easy to understand instructions.

Not only does the book feature numerous designers
it also gives you details of what you can find
on the internet and what will be useful.
You feel like you are getting full service with the book
and you aren't an isolated reader.

At the start of the book everything from tools
to materials is discussed and explained.
You are talked through everything from making a clasp
to how to use a stop bead.

My mum is an avid jewellery maker is 
really excited by this book.
There are so many different designs
and all have a fantastic impact.

With 30 different designs for you to make
you'll be wanting to use this book for a long time to come.

I'm really excited about using different colours
to get more looks from the patterns.

Inspiration from all over the world has been used
to create bold, contrmporary, multi-dimensional
fashion jewellery.


Sometimes jewellery made with beads can look dated.
This book isn't the case.
There are so many designs I want to make
and I already have a list of people I want to make gifts for.

Little Red has already asked if I can make him a few of the animals
so that he can hang them on his bag :-).

I received a copy of the book for free to review. 
However all opinions expressed are my own.
