Synopsis

Jewellery and Accessories by Louise Tythacott

This beautifully illustrated book features jewellery and accessories from all over the world, such as ornate Eastern European bridal crowns and the silver and turquoise worn by the North African Navajo people. It shows the many different types of jewellery and accessories and the varying ways in which they are used and made - for example, the different uses and meanings of natural materials (stones, feathers and shells) in jewellery. It also includes traditional jewellery and accessories for you to make, such as African anklets and an Indian 'evil eye' amulet.
