I don't usually read jewelry-making magazines. Partly because I'm not good at following directions, partly because I'd rather come up with my own ideas. But this cover was so fun and tropical (That necklace! That flower! That dress! ), that I couldn't help but leaf through. A lot of jewelry-making magazines tend to be kind of, well, stodgy (which, come to think of it, is another reason why I avoid them). But not this one. The pages explode with colorful pieces crafted to appeal to the artsy fashionista.
Still, I couldn't be cajoled into committing to any of the projects. Too exact. Too many details. Too many opportunities for me to hurl my pliers at the TV.
