Editorial Reviews

Review

A book blends with a storage box kit of over 3,500 ceramic and metal beads, wire, and threads in a jewelry-making it which arrived too late for Christmas feature, but which will make a fine gift package year-round. Seventeen designs based on ancient Egyptian styles and art are packed into an excellent art kit for ages 10 and older. -- Midwest Book Review

This is a good piece to start with if your interested learning about Ancient Egyptian bead and necklace making. The pieces are mock ups of the real thing and suffer from size distorsions, but other than that a nobel attempt to duplicate in its own way the items of Ancient Egypt. A small booklet that comes with it is packed full of information and the how-tos.

I don't know what they're talking about either! This is a great kit, (and not just for kids). It's just plain fun as well educational. Hats off to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

I've had this book for over ten years,(First got it when I was eleven, and am 22 now), and I was elated when I found it again in old moving boxes.

The directions in the book are very easy to follow, good enough that a kid with no jewelry experience could make the big blue and gold necklace featured on the cover, and I still wear it today.

Re-reading the book today is very inspiring for other projects with similar designs, even though I've long since used up the beads. This had to have been one of my favorite things when I was growing up.

This book is great. I made all of the projects and had plenty of beads to spare, so I don't know what these other folks are talking about. The projects are definitely challenging, however, and you may need to invest in a good set of jewelry-making pliers. Not a book for someone who isn't fairly conceptual and good with his/her hands.
