I love it.
I love the inspirational design boards inside; full of textures and great color combinations.
I like the durability of the hand built frames she helps us measure out.
And I really like how you can use these frames as bases for branching out in your own earring style.
I went for copper.
Warm and gingery from antiquing with not a sparkling thing but a shiva shell.
She calls this style "Casablanca".
"Intended to represent the shape and allure of a Moroccan lamp, the Casablanca earrings evoke the bohemian and exotic."
Yes! There's that word again; bohemian.
Oh so in tune with my mind these days.
I had a great time putting these together with the help of Stephanie's book. I will need a little practice for more evolved styles but I am eager to try more!
Don't let the "capturing celebrity style" and name dropping put you off, this book is filled with handmade artisan earring styles that I think you will enjoy making.
