This is a subject I thought I would not be interested in. It will open your eyes to the possibilities of just what can be achieved. Embroidered jewellery explores a variety of materials in innovative and interesting ways. This book is a little treasure trove of ideas and inspirations. Just looking at the materials section of base fabrics and embellishments will fill you with awe. All types of jewellery form cuffs to collars and earrings are included in this book. Find out how to create unique jewellery using all those modern fabrics such as Angelina fibre and Lazertran. Find innovative uses for things you never thought of making jewellery out of such as kebab skewers. I think some of the projects work better than others - but once you have learned the techniques in this book, it's up to you to create. This book is of the same very high standards that we always see from Batsford/Anova books - great attention to detail, excellent photography and good, clear instructions. http://www.karenplatt.co.uk
