Library Journal Review

Stringing seeds to make necklaces is one of the mainstays of camp craft, but with a little imagination, polishing, and, some jewelry findings, these found objects become attractive costume jewelry. In addition to several dozen step-by-step projects, Yow discusses plants that supply decorative seeds, including those that are toxic and must be used with care. Projects are mainly for beautifully crafted necklaces and earrings, making this an excellent selection for public library crafts collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
