January 22 2008 Jewelry Making Newsletter

January 22, 2008 ~ Chris Franchetti Michaels, Editor

In this issue:

  • New Book Review: Designing Jewelry with Glass Beads
  • New Product Review: The Bead Spinner
  • Announcements

I've fallen into a reviewing mood lately, so I gave the bead spinner a try, and I published a write-up on Stephanie Sersich's upcoming bead jewelry book. If you have questions about either, or if you'd like to share your experiences with a bead spinner, be sure to stop by the forum!

Until next time,

~ Chris
