what a fun book! i really wanted to get into making pendants with clay, and this book has all the detailed instructions and neat examples. there are also so many other cool things in here, like using rub-ons on metal charms and using wire and beads to dress up clasps. i highly recommend this to anyone who wants something different and fun and not like everything else you see in most bead books.

Custom Cool Jewelry by Melinda Barta helps you to create 200+ personalized pendants, charms & clasps.

I was very excited when I received my very own copy and have enjoyed thumbing through the pages and getting inspired at my bead table. I enjoy the intricate details in her w ...more

I have never thought that shrinky dinks (from my childhood) could make really cool jewelry but this book shows many cool examples, plus some great fabric pendants using stamps and ribbon. I love the mini creations! Great inspiration for jewelry or craft enthusiasts.
