Steampunk Apothecary by Jema "Emily Ladybird" HewittYou are invited to join adventuress Emilly Ladybird as she heads off on a fantastical journey of discovery. While searching out strange artefacts for her employers Dickens and Rivett she encounters an array of astounding characters and visions. In this book she will share her exploits and observations. She will then carefully guide the reader through how to make beautiful jewelry and accessories inspired by the fairies, vampires, and other intriguing creatures she meets on her travels. The book features 20 projects in themed chapters, each one opening with a short story that introduces a highly individual steampunk character. The book is inspirational as well as practical, aiming to give a real feel for the style of the subject as a whole. All projects are designed to be completed by a reader with no previous experience in jewelry construction, but are still interesting and inspirational enough to be of interest to the more  advanced crafter.
