In this issue:
- New Article: Crochet and Knit Wire Jewelry - Book Review
- New Directory: Jewelry Making, Beading and Craft Magazines
- Cool Product: Anti-tarnish Cloth-Lined Jewelry Storage Box
For this issue I have a review of Kate Pullen's recent book on crochet and knit wire jewelry. If you've never tried these techniques before, pick up some tiny 36-gauge wire and some old crochet hooks and knitting needles and give them a try. Once you get the hang of it, it's quite addicting! I also have a new magazine directory for the site, and I found a great example of one of my new favorite products, the anti-tarnish storage box. Enjoy,

Anti-tarnish Cloth-Lined Silver Storage Box
So far I've only heard good things about these anti-tarnish cloth-lined jewelry boxes for keeping sterling jewelry and components tarnish free - or nearly tarnish free. This one from Stacks and Stacks is especially nice for jewelry crafters because it has so many differently sized compartments.
