Need quick inspiration? Review by Carys Jones

We've probably all had those "Oh no, I forgot so-and-so's birthday!!" moments. If you're looking for a quick project that doesn't look like it was made at the last minute, this is your book. And if you've got enough time you can make a necklace with matching drops. My only con: as with most craft books, it would be nice to have it spiral-bound.

Buy 101 Wire Earrings for Inspiration! Review by Sheryl Dahl

This book was well worth the price. On the first read, I posty-noted almost every page! In fact, I stopped in the middle to make a pair of earrings that I just couldn't wait to try out! I have flipped through this book many times since then, and have made several of the earrings designs - putting my own spin on them. For pure inspiration, this is an awesome book. There are many new ideas - ideas that I hadn't seen anywhere else before. Many of the ideas are very simple, but they aren't all the same-old, same-old.
