Create beautifully textured jewelry that reflects your true self!

The self-expressive elements we put into the works of art we make can be transferred to the jewelry we create. Colors, textures, symbolism and more make up the works created in our art journals. Author June Roman shares how she draws inspiration from her own journal pages and guides you through the process for making your own wearable works of art that are an expression of your passions, dreams and secrets.

A String of Expression takes you on a journey through five chapters - each exploring a unique facet of our world such as the colors we love, the places we've traveled, the people who have inspired us and the fantasies we tuck deep in our hearts. In addition to discovering how to transcribe all of these things into the components that make up your own jewelry pieces, you'll learn creative new techniques such as:

  • working collage into a pendant
  • knotting beads with leather
  • creating your own toggles from unusual beads
  • developing successful asymmetrical design
  • wire-wrapping
  • making your own bead caps and more!
Take your design skills on an unexpected journey and let A String of Expression inspire you to transcribe your life into jewelry today!
