The lines between wireworkers, beaders, and jewelry makers are blurring as creative explorers dip their toes into new territories, learn new techniques, and apply ideas to new media. Jewelry Your Way" was created just for them. With projects chosen from the popular special issue "Beautiful Jewelry, Make It, Wear It" from the editors of "Bead Style, Bead&Button," and "Art Jewelry" magazines, this book offers the opportunity to "try out" a wide range of projects that match any given style or mood. As an added bonus, it includes a DVD featuring 25 technique tutorials where jewelry makers, who prefer to watch and learn, will discover how easy it is to master basic techniques including wrapped loops, crimping, polymer clay, resin, and more.
