Presented in the style of an artist’s journal, this remarkable handbook uses an informal, conversational approach to teach a wide variety of innovative mixed-media jewelry techniques. Accompanied by fairytale introductions and augmented by watercolor illustrations and design sketches, the 20 unique projects featured, ranging from the delightfully simple to the exquisitely ornate, are infused with personal meaning. Projects make use of various newly popular techniques in mixed-media jewelry, including the creation of resin pendants, PMC clasps, polymer clay beads, and more. All basic techniques are made clear by step-by-step photography.
Cynthia Thornton is the designer for the popular bead-making and jewelry studio, Green Girl Studios. She lives in Asheville, North Carolina.
Now I pre-ordered
it weeks ago. There are myriad discussions and give aways of Facebook if you are a fan of the book. Not even released yet. The anticipation is great, lots of hype. And I know the book wont disappoint. I have been a fan of Green Girl Studios
for – at least 10 years. Their exquisitely detailed pewter charms and beads are a favorite component in jewelry I create as gifts. I think every one needs a Green Girl Studios
( Nope, mentioning this here doesnt enter me in a contest or anything like that. I was just excited to see a release date ( Nov. 6th) up at Amazon!)
