Lots of good ideas in this book. More for beginners than those who are already making jewelry.Directions appear to be good and there are illustrations which help. I would like a bit more ofthe book but what is there is good.Rewritten 04/11/16I received this book free in exchange for my honest review.
Very useful. Could use some more pictures with the descriptions of how to make the earrings. The spelling on the cover is wrong "Advices" should only be Advice. Otherwise, a lot of good information .
Once again, this is a very good book for beginner beaders, although I did pick up a couple of hints that I found useful and I am a more experienced beader. Language is easy to understand and the projects are suitable for the level of beader.
In exchange for an honest review , I received a digital download of this book for free.I love making earrings! I am not an expert by no means and would consider myself a novice. I started out by buying a few essentials for making the earrings and attempted to learn things on my own as I went along. With that being said , I absolutely enjoyed this book. It is perfect for the beginner. The first chapter is about getting started. It explains the proper tools you need to get started. Pictures of the tools are also given in order for the reader to have a better understanding. Next the book explains materials and what to use and what not to use. Things like silver and gold and what works and how to tell what is what. I liked this chapter because it helps you figure out what beads and materials are good for what occassion. I never knew face shapes had any influence on the earings you make for yourself or someone else. Color wheels help you determine what colors are best to use together and for what occassion. I know I will use the first few chapters as a wonderful reference to look back on. Chaperter 4 starts the begining of how to make earings. Each page is filled with pictures and explainations of the process. The instructions seem very clear to understand. I have not made any as of yet but can not wait to get started. I had no idea how to make many of the earings ie. Peruvian earings. I would recommend this book to any beginner. I am an expert by no means but feel this book will help anyone get started. I am glad I am able to add this book to my collection. The tips are great. If not making for yourself you can even get some ideas on selling your earings from this book. Though I wont be selling.. The tips are there for you.
All pictures are in black & white. Color wheels, color charts, beads, earrings, etc. are all in b&w. How ridiculous! It's a short, small booklet (only 84 pp), which is fine, but the font is large and the text is widely spaced throughout, wish many large useless b&w pictures. So, don't expect 84 pp worth of information. This booklet is a real rip-off!
Ever thought about making earrings? In this book the author shares both in words and pictures how to: get started, get the right design, choose the right beads and charms, how to make the earrings, what tools you should have, choosing the right materials for your earring design, how where the earrings are to be worn should affect your choice of designs to make, the shape of the earrings that are best for various face shapes, which color combinations of beads work together (I found this to be very interesting), picking designs to match the wearer’s skin tones, understanding the uses of symbolism in the earrings you make, how to sell what you make and good information on keeping the ears healthy. The last chapter is a great inclusion since the earring for pierced ears can be a source of infection unless one is aware of how to avoid infections. The weight of earrings has to be considered to avoid damaging earlobes.The book is well written, organized, has pictures that I found helpful for tools, beads, etc. After reading this book I want to get my 2 teenage grand daughters interested in making earrings for personal use, gifts and to earn some extra money from making and selling all types of earrings for their friends and family. Needless to say, I really like this book and I know the girls will too.I received a free copy of this book for reading it and doing an honest review.
This is a very comprehensive intro in 6 chapters, 85 pages. The information can be considered for other jewelry besides earrings. Covers tools, materials, silver & gold purity and what the numbers mean, wire gauge, weight,& skin sensitivities. Design considerations are face shape,wearer's profession, beads & charms, color (color wheels provided & explained), skin tone, cultural considerations, period styles, zodiac colors & minerals, symbolism, & healing crystals. There are projects with photos and a diagram of different styles of earrings. Advice is also given for selling, marketing, and the presentation of earrings. A very good intro to making earrings and a good reference of considerations for other jewelry.
I love to craft and I love to make jewelry. this book gives you 33 fun and easy tips to help you with your unique designs in earrings for yourself and for gift giving.This book gives you insights for what types of earrings you might decide to make and what beads or stones you might want to use, as well as step by step instructions from starting with the tools you need and the ways to finish them up for a neat and professional looking pair if ear rings.I like that it also helps you with what earring type looks best with your facial structures, like round faces or oval faces and what earring will enhance your best features!I think the use of the color wheel to help pick colors that co ordinate and enhance your skin was also very helpful.I got this book free in exchange form my honest review.
