I LOVE the bangle cuff in this instruction manual ~ very creative and the ideas for selecting gorgeous color palettes are top notch, in my opinion! The earring projects in this book are more appealing to me than the ones featured in the first publication. I actually want to make them! Joan's work has a very Southwestern feel to it and since I live in Arizona, I share in the Southwestern passion but I also adore Victorian jewelry & would have to say it is my first love. The reason I mentioned this is because of a previous review comment. Every artist has their own style and just because this one isn't up your alley does not mean that it isn't good ~ different strokes for different folks (I hear a song coming on lol!) How about expanding your artistic horizons and dabbling in numerous styles? Personally, I love to do that :)
Bravo to you, Joan! You did a *wonderful* job on your second time around! I'm actually looking forward to your 3rd offering :) As for the price, Amazon has the BEST deal on this book ~ I didn't have to pay additional tax AND the shipping was free! There is plenty here to inspire & hold the attention of a macrame and/or wire enthusiast :)
I love working with wire and have once again picked up my macrame. This book not only has projects I'll try, but it is very inspirational and I can see where I will be branching off and creating my own designs. Already, in the supplies list, I discovered a product I wasn't aware of and have ordered it. That in itself will be worth the cost of this book! I agree it's not a thick book, but what is in it is solid learning material and the photographs are great.
I'm so glad I purchased this book and now I'm going to go and see what else this author has to offer.
Maybe it is because you are using wire and thus it has to be somewhat sturdy so the macramé does not slip off the wire armature.
I do think that with all the macramé and fusion (macramé( knots available it could have been a little better. I will give me
a more sound foundation to start with - so that is why it is just ok.
The step-by-step pictures for each project are extremely helpful for a visual learner like myself.
I did find myself referring back to Joan Babcock's book, "Micro-Macrame Jewelry - Tips and Techniques for Knotting with Beads", which I bought from
Amazon previously.Micro-Macramé Jewelry: Tips and Techniques for Knotting with Beads
If you are getting back to knotting after not doing it for awhile, or if you have never done knotting, I recommend that book, as well!
