Gemstones and pearls are prized for their beauty and for the mystical powers associated with them. Semi-precious stones and minerals and freshwater pearls are now more readily available and affordable than before, making them a realistic material for both hobby and professional jewellery makers alike. This title shows through clear step-by-step instructions how to create your own gemstone and pearl jewellery. There is an introduction on gemstone folklore and the history behind the gems and their perceived powers. Projects for a range of pieces, from necklaces to earrings and ankle bracelets are divided into themes that relate to groups of stones. For example love relates to stones such as rose quartz and garnet, while wisdom relates to jade, tiger's eye or malachite. Sections on basic supplies, suppliers and materials needed and explanations of the necessary tools mean that even beginner jewellers should be able to complete the projects.
