I have always admired the beauty and versatility of resin for jewelry design, and the way it mimics glass without any of the drawbacks. Unfortunately, I can't get past the fact that it is made from petrochemicals, and that crafting with it requires the use of a respirator. I do have to admit that the projects that Sherri Haab demonstrates in this book are gorgeous and inventive.
The projects in this book are mostly not my style, though they show you the wide range of styles and techniques you can use when casting resin. What I did love this book for is the in-depth instructions and tips. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to try their hand at resin jewelry.
