Meanwhile Jema herself takes us through step by step, beautifully illustrated, guides on how to create their rather exquisite accessories.
Each project introduces new techniques and includes sources lists, tricks and tips. Worth it for the art work alone this book is both a fantastical escape and unconventional approach to jewellery making.
I am both hoping for a sequel and that Ms Ladybird will be releasing her journals to the populous enabling us to live vicariously through her and the rather exuberant Mr Woppit.
Meanwhile I will have to make do with the lovely steampunk sparkles this book has shown me how to make. A must for all enthusiast of the clockworks crinoline and brass tech genre.
At first sight I thought the things were going to be right out of my class, but I still loved the stories and pictures in this beautifully designed and presented book. On looking more carefully I saw that there was a range of items illustrated and described and that some were easy enough for me to get started on.
The photographs are good, the instructions clear.
This would make a great gift for an artistic friend. Although described as "paperback" it is sturdy and handles easily.
Imaginative, fun - and a good price.
But what I love about this book mostly are the projects. With each project the author has shared many techniques and a full colour photo step by step guide for making each component for each piece. The techniques can be mixed and matched to develop your own fantastic ideas.
This book will defiantly be well thumbed through and dog-eared from much use as it's so full of knowledge and inspiration.
Jema's book does not do that at all and it almost looks like a coffee table art book than a craft book, something your happy to leave out for others to pick up.
Now i'm a terrible buy a "how to book" and then never do, kind of guy.So it's really nice to actually be able to read the unfolding story of Emilly Ladybirds adventures within. knowing if you never actually get around to making the projects your money isnt wasted as the story within stands a good head and shoulders above many of the steampunk stories on the market.
Having said that the book is so well laid out as a craft book your never in any wonder as to how to do anything. There is even an extra how to section at the back, inspiring your own creativity to rise.
Its really an all round nice book and although only one project section appears aimed at Gentlemen "like myself" the womens projects are incredibly adaptable. The well dressed and unique steampunk needs to buy this book.
This book is a great introduction to playing with polymer clay, embossing, shrinkies and so on. A beginner to any of those mediums could pick it up and manage to create something fun. You could then easily take the techniques learned and go on to create your own designs.
The only issue I have with this book is that it leads to a whole new purchasing experience as you gather together everything you feel you need! One wise bit of advice from Jema is to choose one medium (polymer clay or shrink plastic etc) and master that, before you then move onto the next medium!

This book is great for steampunk enthusiasts, but every project features cogs and old watch parts and is very repetitive. Read morePublished 6 months ago by tracey fae
A little disappointing - I was hoping for a book that would allow a person to create steampunk devices, such as a usb, or make their existing devices more steampunk. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Ms. J. Hall
