Each earring set has movement and the designs range from super sexy (Whisper Drops earrings) to delicate (Pearl Bouquet earrings). But before the projects are presented (50 in all), Mornu's basics goes over everything you need for jewelry making. For beginners, it makes the first projects a little easier and for advance earring makers, it is a superb refresher course. For me, her Bead Types and Shapes section was especially useful.
Large, full color images show details, and the illustrations and helpful photo guides of the work in action are presented with each project. Designers' bios are listed at the back of the book along with their websites for more information. Another good project book from Nathalie Mornu.
