"Pendant Necklaces" full of projects on my "to-try" list
|"Pendant Necklaces" by Jerilynn Clements,|
Nancy Javier and Barbara Finwell
While I mostly work in seed beads, I'm looking forward to giving the projects inside "Pendant Necklaces" a try.
The book, a Leisure Arts Publication by Jerilyn Clements, Nancy Javier and Barbara Finwall, was another birthday gift from my in-laws. I love the look of every necklace it features and the fact that the book includes some instructions on using polymer clay. I've never tried polymer clay, but it's a medium I've long considered adding to my craft stash. Maybe the Dragonfly project will be what will give me the courage to finally give polymer a try.
For now, I'm going to put the book aside while I try out a project from "Elegant Beaded Bags," but this one is next on my list. Some of the projects look so simple, but they still have a lot of "wow." I'm hoping the book will help jump-start my own creativity, which I feel has been a little stagnant lately.
I'll update later with a full review once I've done more than flip through the pages, but I'd like to know: Have you tried this book? If so, what did you think of it? Let me know in the comments field below.
