Beautiful yet simple jewelry to make with and for your friends.
You’ll love these 35 stunning projects. All of them are made with easy craft techniques, including braiding, macramé, and weaving. Many of them use basic materials, such as embroidery floss, beads, and ribbon, with the addition of leather, brass nuts, and rhinestones in some of the more advanced projects. Choose from four chapters: So Sweet, with ideas in a pastel palette; Tribal Attitude, inspired by Native American and African designs and boho chic; Nautical Knots—think stripes and seaside charm; and Neon Brights, infused with zesty colors and stand-out features. As well as bracelets, you’ll find cuffs and headbands to make, and can even learn how to cover your headphone wires in braided floss. All the projects have clear step-by-step instructions and artworks, plus a skill level so that you can begin with the simplest designs and then try more advanced ones.
