Charm Bracelet Diva's Jewelry-Making Book Review

I'm loving a book I got for Christmas entitled "Bead & Button, Ribbon & Felt Jewelry (35 sewing-box treasures to make & give)" by Deborah Schneebeli-Morrell. I know I keep mentioning that I love today's style of jewelry that involves ribbbons -- and that I might just actually make something along those lines.....well, I no longer have any excuses to procrastinate.  There are so many projects in this book I love that I can't even decide where to begin.  My absolute favorites are:

  • Multi-strand Chiffon Ribbon Necklace
  • Charm Bracelet with Woven Silk Ribbons
  • Copper and Metallic Organdy Bracelet
  • Chiffon Ribbon and Glass Bead Necklace
Even if you don't like the particular designs (there are 35 of them) you can still learn quite a few techniques as to how to work with ribbon, etc. in your every-day jewelry-making.  My jewelry challenge is going to be the Chiffon Ribbon and Glass Bead Necklace.  I might tweak the design a bit, but I think I can do it justice.

Now I just have to get all the Christmas decorations put away (including the ornaments!) and organize my (former) scrapbook room into what will now be known as the Charm Bracelet Diva's "Studio"!  Sounds pretty impressive, right? lol!  Well, it's already past the kids' bedtime.  Come Monday all goes back to normal around here.  Maybe I'll even get the time to make that bracelet.  Ciao.
