I love when I come across a free book loaded with great ideas and it's free. I have been making jewelry for a long time but I still found some new ideas in this book. I can down load it to my iPad and pick out the ones I want to try. Thank you.

I enjoy the tutorials, learning a new skill or a better way to achieve something I thought I knew.

I have not made any multi strand bracelets or necklaces yet but I am glad I came across this tutorial to show me how so when I do make them I will know how to finish the ends. this is a must see for beginners wanting to make these strands so you do not get stuck trying to figure out what to do. These multi strand jewelry are so pretty and I will be making some especially since the holidays are close. Any other way to finish them? I love learning these things. Makes jewelry making a lot simpler.

Love to Lear how,
