Book Review – Metal Jewelry in Bloom

Flower Pendant1

I recently purchased the book “Metal Jewelry in Bloom” by Melissa Cable and I am LOVING it. Pictured above is my version of her cherry blossom flower in sterling silver.

The book is well written and illustrated, with easy to follow steps and instructions. There are a ton of amazing projects and the possibilities for making these projects your own is really endless once you have the basic skills that this book provides.

Also included in this book are the templates needed for each flower type, which makes getting started on your first project incredibly easy.

Here are my dogwood flower earrings – a lovely and simple project from the book:

I would absolutely recommend this book for anyone wanting to expand their metalwork skills to include gorgeous metal flower projects.
