30-MINUTE RINGS by MARTHE LE VAN
30-Minute Rings by Marthe Le Van, published by Lark Crafts an Imprint of Sterling Publishing. This Brilliant 136 page paperback book begins with pics of each project. On page nine you receive 2 list of supplies you will need to do all these projects. List one is a BENCH TOOL KIT and list two is a SOLDERING KIT. So get ready for a little trip to the store. On page ten the 60 projects begin with written step by step instructions and continue through pages 128 and 129 where the last project is completed. On pages 130-134 you are treated to a brief designing history of each designer. After reading this stunning book I was totally inspired. Within these 60 projects I found a lot of designs I truly loved and could see myself wearing . There were designs I couldn't see myself wearing but I totally appreciated the artistic value of them. There are projects for beginners through experts. As for taking 30 minutes per project well I think that would depend on each artist. As for me it would take me longer as I am not the fastest horse in the race. I was as mentioned before very inspired with the projects in this book. I am proud to have this awesome book in my crafting library. If you have any question regarding this publication please leave them in the comment area and I will be sure to get back to you with a asap.
