I also have recently found more books that have inspired me...on being Sharilynn Miller's book called, "Wire Art Jewelry". Her techniques are amazing and the book comes with a DVD which helps with showing her techniques. The other book is more spiritual to me, but is a jewelry book just the same called, "INSPIRITU Jewelry" by Marie French. I was so moved by the book that I emailed her to tell her so. I also said I was buying a book on the meaning of stones and it just happened to be one on her list to buy as well. The book is a journey of Marie finding jewelry notes, etc. in the southwest and how she has adapted the information to create her own jewelry for friends and family. The idea is that stones have a healing nature and wearing the right kinds of stones together can hopefully influence a person's life in a positive way. There are even recipes for teas to drink with specific types of jewelry. All of this found in a journal kept by a special lady years ago in an old adobe in the southwest. So needless to say, I have thought about jewelry-making in a whole new way. Below are some of my Celtic pieces I have recently created.
