Check out any red carpet or catwalk and it’s clear: jewelry makes or breaks an outfit. Now, longtime crafter Cheryl Owen shows how easy it is to make stunning necklaces, earrings, brooches, bracelets, and rings that will compliment any ensemble. Her contemporary collection of 25 designs features a fabulous range of readily available semi-precious beads and stones: pearls, Swarovski crystals, and gems, along with silver- or gold-plated findings and wire. A techniques section covers all the basics, and each project is shown in full step-by-step detail. Beautifully modeled pieces provide the extra inspiration to complete these individual treasures.
