If you have ever wanted to venture into the world of jewellery-making but didn’t know where to begin then this could be the book for you. The fully illustrated step-by-step projects will guide you with ease through a variety of techniques suitable for all levels, even the beginner, enabling you to create individual gifts for loved ones or one-off items to treasure yourself. The collection provides inspiration and helpful tips along the way, with a project to suit every personality. From the sophisticated Audrey, the sea-themed La Mer, to the 60s inspired Funky. Techniques to learn range from crimping to knotting, wire wrapping to using illusion cord. The colourful charms, beads and buttons can be adapted for your own designs, and as you progress through the book you’ll discover an array of alternative materials to incorporate too, such as wire, ribbon, fabric and even recycled zips!
