Sherri Haab- Jewelry Techniques & Inspirations



I received Sherri Haab's new book in the post not long back and have only just got round to having a proper look at it. 
Another awesome book from Sherri, I have her metal clay book.  This one covers everything from wire wrapping, metal clay, etching, polymer clay, fiber art and more!

Its starts with Sherri showing you around her studio and giving tips on organization,  once you get past drooling over her amazing studio she goes on to explain how she uses notebooks and also tips on taking and teaching classes.
After giving tips all basic jewellery techniques such as wire wrapping, working with jump rings and mixing resin to name a few the rest of the book is split into 5 sections.  Memories such as inspirations by the sea, Seasons has some techniques for Halloween and winter then there is Collections, Blast from the Past and Hobbies.
There are step by step instructions for all of the projections with great photography to match, clear bright and beautiful photos.

This book has definitely given me some projects for the future using materials I would never thought of using.  All in all a great and beautiful book!
