Bejewelled Summary


Bejewelled: Beautiful Bespoke Fashion Jewellery to Make and Wear Using Crystals, Beads and Charms by Claire Aristides

In this practical, accessible guide, Claire Aristides, one of today's hottest, most inspirational jewellery designers, shows how to make your own fabulous creations. Packed with beautiful, bespoke pieces, Bejewelled comprises a breathtaking range of vintage, classic and contemporary necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings. These original, feminine creations have been selected from Claire's own stunning jewellery designs and consist of more than 30 unashamedly sexy, glamorous and totally wearable accessories for every occasion.
Claire's passion for handmade excellence is apparent throughout the book in the simplicity of her jewellery, her love of mixing colour and texture, and her ability to choose the most alluring stones and materials. Satin ribbon and suede make dramatic statements when teamed with crystals and wooden beads, while topaz pendants mix luxuriously with decorative gold adornments.
Claire offers invaluable advice on getting started, how to approach the design of jewellery and how to choose from the vast array of beads and materials available. She goes on to give instruction on how to accomplish the basics, from making links and fastenings, and stringing different components, to how to secure the finished pieces.
Within the 'Jewellery Collection' itself, 30 step-by-step projects allow you to acquire a variety of skills, including wiring and working with different materials such as semi-precious stones, shell and cord, in the process becoming more proficient. All the projects - whether a tiger's eye ring, a pair of turquoise teardrop earrings or a Swarovski crystal pendant - put creative jewellery design within everyone's reach.
