This book has to be one of the best ones yet. I make jewelry so I have beads and clay and findings. I won't have to go out and buy a thing. The hardest thing for me will be to decide which one to make first. But that's a happy difficulty. tHanks for sharing this book online.

Ooh, this collection combines my love of jewelry making and ornaments. I am definitely going to make several of these.

Have you made any yet. These reindeers are so cute and easy to make. I am going to try and do all homemade ornaments this year on my tree. I just started making jewelry last year so I am looking for all sorts of different ornaments. I do not drink wine so do you have any idea where I can find the corks and the super small bells?

I like everything I have seen so far.
