30-MINUTE NECKLACES by MARTHE LE VAN , PUBLISHED by LARK BOOKS A DIVISION of STERLING PUBLISHING COMPANY, INC. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Marthe Le Van is a jewelry editor for Lark Crafts. Since 2000 she has written, edited, juried or curated more than 40 titles. Marthe is a member of the Art Jewelry Forum, The Society of North Amnerican Goldsmiths and the Precious Metal Clay Guild. ABOUT THE BOOK: What a fabulous collection of designs and designers. This 136 page paper back book gives what it promises and more. There are 60 Outstanding projects. There are a few projects suitable for beginners. There are also projects that are a bit more complex and will require a bit more experience. Before you get to the projects you are treated to 3 pages of pictures of each design. Then on page 8 you receive an introduction. On page 9 there are two list of supplies you will need to do these projects...List one : BENCH TOOL KIT List two: SOLDERING KIT...I can't imagine having all these items on hand , but hey I love to shop. On page 10-129 the projects begin. Then on pages 130-134 you will learn about each contributing designer. Page 135 is about the author and acknowledgement and page 136 is the designer index. I found this book to be simply brilliant. I do however feel that some of the projects would take me longer than 30 minutes to complete. But I am not the fastest horse in the race. Every project isn't suitable for beginners. Some of the designs I loved and would wear proudly while others I couldn't see myself wearing. I did however greatly appreciate the artistry displayed in each piece.
