Review 1 for Create Jewelry Crystals
Date:November 9, 2007
"This book has wonderful ideas, project and history! My second design had a slow beginning because I couldn't find the same color beads as they suggested. It turned out great because in my search I discovered so many other Swarovski colors that I ended up with my own color scheme!"

Review 2 for Create Jewelry Crystals
Not what I expected
Date:November 3, 2007
"I was thrilled to see another book in the "Create" series but disappointed with the projects. The projects were one-of-a-kind with materials and Swarovski colors that are currently hard to find. However, I was fascinated with bits of history and extras that were included in the book between the projects."
