I wanted to share this great review about jewellery making – more specifically earrings – and had a wonderful epiphany. This book can meet two kinds of needs in the gift department. First you could gift the book to that friend who likes to make jewellery or secondly you can use the book to make your own earrings for gifts to your friends. Fabulous.
