Sherri Haab Jewelry Inspirations by Sherri Haab
Sherri Haab has long been a driving force in the craft world. Her books have always offered wonderful projects for great jewelry, and you can count on them for clear process shots, simple tools, and tons of creative concepts. Yet Inspirations is new and unique because Sherri tells the stories in her life that motivated each piece. Whether its a treasure that recalls the beach where she played as a child, or a pendant that literally encases a vintage photo, each project has a sweet emotional twist. It’s these personal touches that transform ordinary jewelry into true keepsakes.
I love the cool colors in this Winter Solstice Charm Bracelet (and the adorable felt accents). Beyond sharing the step by step method she used for making the bracelet, she also tells how the pieces of this bracelet comes from her annual charm swap, where each of her friends brings charms to share. It’s such a great idea, and a really perfect way to carry memories with you all the time.
