    Cute little book with nice ideas. As a goldsmith I could easily follow the instructions but for those without experience I would recommend to follow some workshops first before trying things like soldering.

    I just received this book in the mail (thank you, Mary Beth, for the copy!). Sea glass is now harder to find, but the pieces I have are quite beautiful. That said, this book is a must-have for anyone who wishes to create jewelry out of their finds. It provides full color photos, describing the varieties of sea glass, and takes the reader on a step-by-step guide toward creating unique pieces. She even tells the reader exactly what tools are needed and why.

    This was a cute little book. It was very basic and simple but charming. I am not sure if I will ever hunt for sea glass or even make jewelry from it but I love to see what others are doing in the world of the arts. My best part of the book was the authors stories and antidotes. I actually loved reading the information more than I liked the jewelry in the book I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

    This book is not big on giving project guidelines. Instead, it teaches the basic techniques and gives ideas for projects. It is well written and organized, and definitely made me want to scour my local beach for sea glass to turn into beautiful jewelry! I received this book as part of a First Reads giveaway.

    Interesting account of sea glass collecting and use in jewelry. Makes me wish I lived closer to the ocean. On my wishlist.
