"Enchanted Adornments"

I recently discovered this book - and just had to share it with you.  "Enchanted Adornments" by Cynthia Thornton is an absolutely enchanting book.

Basically its a 'how-to' book -- in that Cynthia shows us how to make beautiful mixed-media jewelery.  The techniques she teaches and features include metal clay, wire, resin and more.  There are lovely pictures of the jewelry and wonderful instructions but...

...there is a story line throughout the book -- where our heroine is on a trip visiting magical mythical creatures and for each one she must make a piece of jewelry.  The stories of her travels and the lovely creatures she meets along the way are wonderfully illustrated. 

This is a book that one can curl up with - let the imagination travel with the artist and thoroughly enjoy faraway pretend worlds!
