Formal Jewelry by Karen McKenna Book Review

Well Karen has done it again! She has created yet another beautiful book of wonderful crochet designs for all of us to enjoy! Formal Jewelry published by Leisure Arts is now available here!
Please be sure to visit Karen at her blog Ihookdesign

When I first received this book, I must admit that I was just a little bit intimidated. I don't typically work with thread and my beading experience is limited but it didn't take long to realize I had nothing to fear. Not only are the instructions so detailed and clear, but there is also a bonus online video tutorial!

I love that the projects look so classy and elegant and yet they would take very little time to complete. What wonderful gifts they would make!

My very favorite project in the book which I will be making just as soon as I can get the supplies, are the Silver Barefoot Sandals. They just scream "Fun" but they are also very sophisticated. Picture a gorgeous bride getting married on a warm, sunny beach. Perfect! And I will be keeping that image in my mind while we are in the single digits this week, anticipating snow and freezing rain! 
Stay safe and warm my fiber friends!
