Title: Hip Handmade Memory Jewelry
Author: Cathy Jakicic
Level: Adv. Beginner – Intermediate
Tired of the same old charm bracelet as a jewelry memory keepsake? The new book Hip Handmade Memory Jewelry by Cathy Jakicic gives you so many fresh options; you’ll be looking for occasions to make projects from this book.
Immediately, Beadphoria was impressed by the amount of photographs of the projects and accompanying steps. The colors are vivid and each project is easy to follow along.
The diversity of the projects makes it easy to find something for everyone at every age. A bracelet to encourage reading for a grade school student, a baby clothes swatch pendent for a new mother, even friendship rings that would be a unusual way a grandmother to show off pictures of her grandchildren.
Beadphoria loved the various techniques used in Hip Handmade Memory Jewelry. It is a gold mine of information. You will come away with ideas for using resin, metal hole punches, incorporating chain, how to use wrapping paper left over from a shower or wedding to make beads, and many more.
Hip Handmade Memory Jewelry is a must for every beader’s library.
