Designer Irina Miech presents 27 new jewelry projects that showcase the newest, and most fun, components now widely available. In Finding Style, you will find how to use these new toys, and you'll definitely be inspired to move forward with them. The projects are fairly basic, so if you are a beginner, this may be the book for you.
There is a bike chain bracelet on page 40 that I really want to make, and I also love the way Irina uses leather bracelets with rivets to attach interesting buttons and other pieces. There are five sections: Bezels and settings, Gears and jump rings, Metal buttons and rivets, Beach stones and metal stampings, and Filigree and chain.
Each chapter begins with an overview of the materials, tools, and techniques needed. You will find that many of these ideas will help your designs to go 3D, so if additional dimension, texture, height, or just excitement is what you're looking for, look inside this book!
