Library Journal Review

These two guides cover specialized techniques not often found in jewelry craft books. Wood is not usually thought of as a jewelry material, but carved and polished wood makes striking necklaces and earrings. Lydgate (The Art of Making Small Wood Boxes, Sterling, 1997) has collected projects from 24 woodworkers. Many involve laminates or marquetry, and all have step-by-step instructions with diagrams and color photographs. Danish crafter Peterson's jewelry is of two types: jewelry that is knitted, twisted, and braided in techniques similar to macramé and jewelry made from rings similar to chain-mail armor. The projects are inspired by pieces found in Viking hoards and have a strong medieval appearance. Both books are suitable for general crafts collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
