Proving that it doesn't take a professional designer to create gorgeous gemstone jewelry, this guide explains how adding turquoise, amethyst, jasper, onyx, or any other semiprecious stone can bring stunning results to handmade jewelry. From elegant and dressy to sassy and flirty, 23 projects are presented, ranging in difficulty from easy stringing to seed bead weaving techniques. Innovative designs combine with intriguing anecdotes, history, and tips about these multifaceted beads, resulting in a unique way of creating and thinking about stone design for necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Projects are divided into classic, special occasion, and fashion-forward categories, and beautiful photographs are accompanied by step-by-step, easy-to-follow instructions.
