5.0 out of 5 stars Curl Up in Your Bunny Slippers While You Learn How to Make Magic, November 26, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pretty Little Things: Collage Jewelry, Trinkets and Keepsakes (Paperback)
I have always loved Sally Jean's website, and in fact have made personal jewelry for my sister, best friend and myself using many pieces which I ordered from her. Imagine my delight when I learned she was coming out with her own book! And what a swirl of glitter, enchantment and charm! It is lovely, through and through.

By the way, she likes bunny slippers. That is why I threw that in to my review title!

Now, there is one caveat: you have to be prepared to learn to create a proper collage, plus solder and cut glass properly (nothing a quick course in stained glass making couldn't help you out with, however, but you won't need it--this book explains how very clearly) or this book becomes just a good read. It would be worth it, anyway, just not AS worth it. It would become more like a tour of the magic in Sally Jean's head which is pretty great fun. But it is frankly, a SERIOUS craft book, enrobed within her spectacularly beautiful and sweet outlook on the world and delight in family, the past, old things which nobody wants, which "call out" to be rescued, and a lot of pretty things like German glass glitter, old postcards and things we love to be comforted with and enjoy looking at.

I wanted to make many of her things right away: her crosses, her little french chair, her incredibly chic bottle bangle(WOW! Love it!!!), and her cool flower power pen. I want to have all these things!!! So therefore I will have to make them!

I really liked the way she set up the beginning of this book clearly so you have a grasp of what you need to learn.

I really loved the projects.

I really like her attitude and the look of the book!

A great book! Thanks, Sally Jean!
