Beading with Charms: Beautiful Jewelry, Simple Techniques
From a reconstructed vintage necklace that incorporates family heirlooms to a locket collar with trinkets and ribbon, these projects are literally charm-filled. This latest entry in the popular Beading with series goes way beyond the familiar charm bracelet; it features unique pieces that are fresh, fashionable, fabulous, and fun. And you'll be amazed at the found, fabricated, and repurposed objects the talented artists have dangling from their jewelry: Swarovski hearts, salvaged keys, board game bits, travel mementoes, and more. Some of the creations—including earrings made from Cracker Jack prizes—strike a nostalgic chord; others, like the Rustic Charms design with silvery discs and clusters of freshwater pearls, have a touch of elegance. Every crafter will find one to make her own.
