Introduction Steven James spent his childhood breaking most rules of creativity – coloring outside the lines, peeling the wrapper off crayons and making glue skin in the palm of his hand. Now that he is older, wiser and craftier he still wants to break the rules, but he needs you to join in the fun. Put aside the responsibilities of your life and get back the creative connections you made as an 8-year old. A full-time elementary school teacher, he loves taking a break from his own routine and spending a few hours with adults who will hopefully avoid picking noses, scabs or fights and focus on being as creative and inspired as possible. In classrooms around the country, Steven James teaches a unique D.I.Y. approach to creative living. In addition to teaching jewelry making and general crafting he has made appearances on the HGTV and DIY networks. His independent work has appeared in several publications, including BeadStyle, ReadyMade, Budget Living and Bead Unique magazines. Find his projects in the new books, 30 Minute Necklaces (Lark) and Jewelry in a Flash (Kalmbach) or visit his website for creative inspiration.
