This user friendly book focuses on getting the basic principles of design and colour right before moving on to the techniques needed to create and design fabulous pieces of jewellery. Each design will have basic through advanced instructions to cater for different levels of ability/experience. Designs are included for bracelets, necklaces, earrings, brooches and hair combs, and contain detailed instructions on finishing techniques that make your jewellery look both professional and fashionable. There is also a focus on cost-cutting by listing the essential tools, and those you can get by without, as well as how to keep costs down.
