I just received The Complete Guide to Rubber Stamping Jewelry today and I love it! The first part of the book concentrates on getting started with jewelry making which includes wire basics such as jump rings, eye pins, bead connections, etc. The rest of the book has clear cut instructions for making great rubber stamped jewelry out of glass, polymer clay, fun foam, copper and many other surfaces. The instructions are well written and they are best used by crafters who already have a knowledge of working with the materials used in the projects.
This is Sherilyn Miller's best book and I highly recommend it for any one who loves to create unique rubber stamped jewelry.

Sure, it is called Rubber Stamped Jewelry, but it is more than that! This must-have book shows a wide range of techniques with well written instructions. Photographs give you a clear understanding of working with wire, rubber stamps, polymer clay, fibers, and more.
You will be inspired to create several of these projects for yourself, for gifts, and for embellishments for other work. The projects are easy enough for beginners and creative enough for the advanced.
I am glad that I have this book and it will make a great gift as well!

All of Sharilyn Miller's books are among the most popular we sell at The Stamp Lady- a paper crafts store in Massachusetts (as is the magazine she edits, Somerset Studio). In "Rubber Stamped Jewelry" her innovative ideas are matched by clear, detailed directions and plenty of excellent color photographs. Sharilyn has excellent projects in this book - really beautiful finished pieces - built around an array of tools and mediums (polymer, polyshrink, glass, tiles, etc.). The book includes an excellent "Getting Started" section which carefully details the basic techniques used throughout the book so a beginner will have no trouble keeping up. Best of all, the jewelry you will construct using her methods is simply gorgeous. Buy the book today...you have plenty of time to make holiday gifts if you start now!

Ms. Miller has amazing vision into designs of various media and it is great to see her compile some of her work previously published in Belle Amoire and other magazines...plus additional pieces not seen elsewhere. Going over the basics of jewelry construction is VERY basic for the most part (e.g. how to hold open and closed a pair of jewelry plies - with images!) and I feel this was unnecessary for the caliber of the book. Following this are tips on using stamps, polymer clay, shrink art plastic, metal, etc. and put them to use with jewelry designs. These sections are covered well for the beginner and good review for the intermediate to advanced practioners. Almost all steps discussed are complimented with a picture - nice to have. I had to balk at the work done using fibers, primarily as a component for the necklaces (i.e. replacing chain/beads with fibers). For the most part, this style just looked messy to me, although some may find it quite bohemian in appeal. The numerous projects were creative and often inspiring me to go in a new route with my own designs...and this fact is the key for a good book on design of any medium - inspriation/creativity. Some of the pieces/projects were a little much - too many charms, or dangles, and loose fibers - while others were simple, unique and what I would prefer to wear if I had the piece. Therefore - I would consider this book for the beginner to intermediate jewelry artist wanting to explore techniques and products other than just beads/pearls/gems/crystals/wire/chain for their designs. Plus it is great for those of us, me included, to use our abundant rubber stamp collections for implementation using various media (e.g. paper, shrink plastic, polymer clay, dominos, metal - my favorite) into our jewelry designs. I often forget this and by having this book near my work space where I make my jewelry, it is a great reminder when my creative process needs a boost.

Anyone involved with creating jewelry will do well to buy this book. Sharilyn has compiled a project gallery with 20 inspiring art jewelry techniques for the novice or the advanced jewelry artist, with complete directions, clear and concise photos, and basic jewelry-making materials. The techniques and tips on rubber stamping, polymer clay embellishments, fiber art embellishments, shrink plastic embellishments and other creative embellishments are about the best you can possibly get. Included are a gallery of innovative Art Jewelry by other notable Jewelry artists in this field. A gem of a book!

I first saw this book at the library...had to run out and buy a copy immediately so I could keep it for reference and inspiration! Wonderful step-by-step projects. My favs are the ones involving polymer, but have figured out ways to adapt some of the other designs to my fav medium. A must have for your home library.

I bought this as a book to get me started with some basics. The first section is very detailed on basics other than stamping - some of which came in handy and I used immediately. I like the projects - although some are a little intimidating - such as the polymer clay projects - as I've never used that medium before. A little on the advanced side.
