I don’t think I need another hobby but I have always been interested in jewelry making. I took a class once but didn’t really pursue further because I simply was not inspired by jewelry making books and magazines that I perused. In recent years though, J.Crew and Anthropologie are bringing jewelry sexy back and I am so pumped up. Alas, I couldn’t find any good and inspiring jewelry making book, I guess I just have to look past the dowdy looking jewelry and focus on learning the basic. So, I was so happy when I found this book on my usual saturday visit to the local library
The author is Kaari Meng who also owns French General, a chic shop selling home and sewing items with French flair. Her inspiration is French at the turn of the century but they all look quite contemporary. She also designs for Anthropologie. Here are a few of my favorites
Hmm, should I start buying supply and make those lovelies for myself?
