So if anyone fancies buying it for me for Christmas – please do!
After seeing loads of fabulous old lockets and keepsakes at Blair Castle a while ago I really want to learn how to make lockets.
The lockets I saw at Blair Castle were for loved ones and contained locks of hair and other small momentos and they really touched me at the time, as I’d just had my operation to remove my ectopic pregnancy and I wished I could make something as beautiful as the lockets I saw on display to contain a few memories of my own.
I looked through the books that I had but none of them contained the information I needed. Then I found this book on Amazon and added it to my wishlist. I totally forgot about it until today.
It’s packed full of detailed demonstrations and introduces a variety of metalworking techniques for box construction, hinges and closing devices.
I have another book by Tim McCreight and it’s really good, so I know this will be a good buy.
