The instructions are clear and has step-by-step photography and diagrams where necessary, so we can learn how to use memory wire, beading wire, stretchy cord, chain and jump rings to make desirable jewellery pieces. Projects in this book are achievable within a couple of hours. Once we prepare ourself with the necessary instruments, it is easy to understand and follow the instructions in this book to make our own designs.

We used the Clay Play! Jewelry book to learn how to make jewellery using clay. This book helps us use simple balls and coils of polymer clay and make wearable art. The step-by-step photos and instructions allow us to make 40 whimsical jewellery projects and 10 types of beads.

As you see above, the instructions are step-by-step and clear to understand. We think this book is useful for crafters of all ages.

We combined the tips on the Jewellery School: Let's Start Beading with the skills we learned from the Clay Play book to make earrings, bracelets and other jewellery.
