CindyNG, July 5, 2008 (view all comments by CindyNG)
I love stories. As an artist, most of my work is sold with a story. My customers love stories and I gravitate towards a good story. But it's difficult to write a jewelry making book based on stories. I mean there's the dry instructions you have to write and how can you put those into an interesting story? It can't be done, right?

If you feel like I do, then you will be elated when you pick up Links by Jean Yates. Jean has achieved the unachievable and has written a jewelry making book full of stories, clear instructions and lovely projects.

The table of contents tells you this is no ordinary jewelry making book. Contents include: Family and Friends, Nature, Bead Box and Color. In the front of the book, Jean discusses materials and techniques and shares resources at the end.

Each project has a charming title, for example, "Alice's Cosmopolitan Necklace." Materials and tools are listed so you'll know what to purchase. A large close up of the finished project is included along with instructional pictures. The pictures are large and clear so if you're trying some of the techniques for the first time, you can see how to do it. There is a tip and of course, the wonderful story about Alice, Jean's sister.

There's more where that came from! The entire book is a story told from Jean's point of view - if you take the journey with Jean, you'll end it with beautiful jewelry and a smile on your face.
