Whether its beach stones, seed pods, or Queen Elizabeth, Irina draws a direct parallel from her inspirational source to finished handcrafted jewelry. Each of the 24 main projects includes a full-color photo of Miech’s inspiration, an explanation of how she translates that into materials and colors. Pearls, crystals, gemstones, wire and more are used to create stunning necklaces, bracelets and earrings, and every project includes bonus design and technique variations. Readers can make the projects as show, or use them as motivation to discover inspirational sources for their own creative process.
