Making Fabric Jewelry - Review and Give Away

 Marthe Le Van has written a book to delight people like myself -- who love fabric and like to make jewelry. There are over 20 projects in this book with brief explanations that are well written and illustrated.

The projects range from very simple ones like the necklace of circles of fabric illustated on the back of the book, to more complicated pieces like the necklace on the front.

For those interested in more complicated challenges, there are plenty of those as well. This is a book that could keep one interested for a long time.

Any if one just wants to look at the pictures, Le Van has included a number of other examples of fabric jewelry by other artists.

If you are interested in owning a copy of this book, leave me a comment on this blog by Sept 10 and a way to contact you (USA only)  and I will  randomly draw a name to send the book to.
