This fabulous new book from the editor of Making Jewellery magazine is the ideal resource for jewellery makers keen to learn the intricacies of creating wedding jewellery. From elegant earrings to eye-catching headpieces, along with necklaces, bracelets and brooches galore, there are plenty of imaginative and stylish pieces to complement any bridal outfit. The book is divided into five inspirational collections in a range of captivating styles: Classic, Vintage, Lace, Nature and Floral, with six pieces of jewellery in each one. Each chapter also features at least one special technique which is unique to that particular collection. Although some jewellery-making knowledge is assumed, all the basic techniques are covered in a separate section. There is also a discussion of the tools and materials required, so the book is suitable for beginners as well as experienced makers. Every bride should feel like a princess on the big day and with the help of Sian Hamilton’s gorgeous jewellery she’ll look like one, too.
Wedding Jewelry is a beautiful book. It is full of inspiration and the 30 designs are simple but stunning.
They are classic, feminine and also quite vintage, so they are definitely going to give you an ultra modern look.
I loved the Tiara, I will be making it to wear to my New Years Eve party.
Every jewellery maker will love this book.
The instructions are easy to understand and each step is in full colour photography,
There is a detailed material guide, which explains each piece of kit and what it is used for, so even a beginner will be able to make something divine.
The technique section, once again, gives a full description and really is a lesson in understanding and learning.
I loved the Tiara, so obviously this was the first piece I made.
The design is simple but beautiful, and can be made as small simple piece or much larger depending on your personal style.
I added small gold beads to my design.
Happy crafting x
