30-Minute jewelry making series by Lark Books
Pub Date:June 2012
Color:8 X 9
30 Minute Bracelets is the latest release in the 30 Minutes series from Lark Books. The book includes 60 quick and creative projects for jewelry makers but it does not include any basic how to techniques or information on working with tools and materials. So if you’re a beginner with no jewelry making experience then this would not be the book to start learning the basics. However,if you’ve made jewelry and have some basic how to knowledge or other reference books on the subject and you’re looking for some fun and interesting new bracelets to add to your jewelry box then you’ll love this book. Projects include bracelets made from leather,plastic,copper,sterling,brass and beads and all can be made in 30 minutes. Rather than a standard table of contents that lists a description and a page number,the book opens with a visual table of contents that shows an image of the bracelet and the page number so you can easily scan through all the projects in the book visually.
There are three other books in this series too: 30-Minute Rings,30-Minute Earrings and 30-Minute Necklaces. All of these books are formatted the same with a visual table of contents and none of them include any basic how to jewelry making techniques so they’re not for beginners with no jewelry making experience. All of them however,are filled with beautiful,contemporary and even some eclectic jewelry ranging from casual to elegant styles. You can see my complete review of all of these books on their individual product pages on Amazon.
