Reviews

..".excels in not only clear color photos, but better-than-average close-up shots of step-by-step processes as it explores the world of creating charm bracelets using techniques with ethnic origins. Readers interested in the topic will find it blends a number of jewelry-making approaches with a discussion of basic supplies, project steps, how to incorporate polymer beads into the jewelry design, and how to make charms using molds and different knotting techniques. The wide range of styles and approaches offers readers a satisfying diverse set of skills and descriptions perfect for those who already like charm bracelets and want the insights on how to put them together."- The Midwest Book Review Bookwatch "Friendship bracelets are back! Combine them with unique polymer clay components, and you have a winning book by Sherri Haab. Sherri covers all the basics of polymer clay, macrame, knotting, and braiding, and applies them to 35 fashionable designs. Easy-to-read illustrations and great photos guide you through projects that utilize easy-to-find materials and a variety of techniques. These bracelets would make great holiday gifts, even for yourself!" - Bead and Button magazine "The traditional braided or knotted friendship bracelet serves as a jumping-off point for the designs in Haab's (Beaded Macrame Jewelry; The Art of Resin Jewelry) latest jewelrymaking book, but the focus is on handmade charms using polymer clay. After an introductory section presenting methods for beading, weaving, and knotting thread or cord, Haab demonstrates a variety of projects: whimsical charm bracelets featuring animals, seashells, or sugar skulls; casual costume jewelry with beads and crystals set in polymer clay; and sophisticated pieces inspired by nature. Polymer clay techniques, including simple wirework, molded clay charms, canework, and sculpture, are provided, in addition to a number of finishing styles. While some of the simpler projects are beginner-friendly, others are best attempted by crafters with some experience working with polymer clay. The written directions are thorough, and close-up photographs of key steps help guide crafters to a successful outcome. VERDICT Despite the title, these aren't the embroidery floss "friendship bracelets" most crafters think of....Yet crafters who are interested in combining polymer clay with braided or knotted fibers will find solid ideas in this collection." - Library Journal ..".excels in not only clear color photos, but better-than-average close-up shots of step-by-step processes as it explores the world of creating charm bracelets using techniques with ethnic origins.
