In this inspirational book, embroiderer and textile artist Shirley Anne Sherris reveals the secrets of her exquisite jewellery pieces, all created using hand and machine embroidery.

Over 30 innovative techniques are explored, from invaluable technical information on how to calculate sizes to surface embellishment with beads and sequins. A wealth of different materials is used, including sheer fabrics, cut lace, felt, leather and found objects such as metal rings and garden mesh.

The author designs in a range of styles, from dainty and delicate confections to dramatic statement pieces. Ten projects are scattered throughout the book, including a pretty bracelet made from covered metal rings and an elegant floral necklace made from layered sheer fabrics.

Throughout the book, the author encourages the reader to develop their own creativity through experimentation and playing with materials and techniques. Illustrated with stunning examples of the author's work, this is a book for all embroiderers and textile artists who love jewellery. (word count: 25,000)
