<b>Jackie Kennedy: The Biography</b><br /><br />Jacqueline Kennedy’s life was, in many ways, like a fairy tale. She is remembered as the lovely, cultured woman who charmed nearly everyone she met with her simple but savvy elegance. And, she is remembered most of all as John F. Kennedy’s First Lady. <br /><br />Jackie Kennedy was seen as a role model for fashionistas, socialites, jetsetters and in-crowd women everywhere. She was more popular than movie stars, more idolized than rock stars, and at the same time, revered as the ultimate example of a loving mother. When she mourned the fatal shooting of her husband, the country mourned with her.<br /><br />Yet, she was criticized in certain circles as a woman who subordinated herself to her husbands – first John F. Kennedy and then Aristotle Onassis. And, she wasn’t as vocal about political and social issues as many other first ladies have been. Yet, she proved later on that she was extraordinarily intelligent and amazingly compassionate. <br /><br />When John F. Kennedy died, Jacqueline told Life Magazine that his administration had been like Camelot. The name stuck, and it is still used today. Although she used the name to describe Kennedy’s presidency, Jacqueline’s image is wrapped into the perception of what Camelot really was: noble, beautiful, truthful and full of goodness.<br /><br />Her life may have been like a fairy tale, but it was not quite like the cleaned-up fairy tales today’s parents tell their little ones today. In many ways, more like a tale right out of Grimm’s, Jackie Kennedy’s life had beautiful moments, but it also contained nearly unbearable losses. Nearly everyone alive at the time of John F. Kennedy’s death can remember where they were when they heard the news of it. How much more devastating his death must have been for Jacqueline.<br /><br />Other questions at the heart of the Jacqueline Kennedy myth are more about the reality of her life. What was Camelot really like for her? How did she get there? And what did she do after it was over? How did she find the strength to keep moving on past the deaths of so many loved ones? How did she maintain her composure while standing at the center of life’s stage, even through her struggle with a deadly illness?<br /><br />Not all of these questions are even answerable now that she is gone. However, the intention of this book is to shed as much light as possible on who Jackie Kennedy was and how she managed her life in the public eye.<br /><br />We hope you enjoy reading this brief introduction to the life and times of this amazing woman. Further, we hope you are inspired to study her life in greater depth. Through happy times and tragic ones, Jacqueline was Jacqueline. To those who loved her, both intimately and from afar, Jackie's was truly an extraordinary life.<br /><br /><b>Jackie Kennedy: The Biography</b>

Wearing jewelry is essential to helping women developed their own style. For women wishing to create a look that's unique, the last thing they'll want to invest money in is mass produced pieces of jewelry. It's for this reason alone, learning the skills needed for making silver jewelry could prove extremely beneficial. When it comes to making such pieces you need to know where to purchase the right kinds of supplies. In this book not only do we discuss what's needed to start your own silver jewelry making venture but also provide several projects you may want to try out. We also recommend you attend a silver jewelry-making course if you can as well. If you're having problems finding courses we highly recommend you look online for what you need. You may even find an online course that enables you to learn in the comfort of your own home. As a beginner, the kind of course you should be looking for is one, which covers the basics. The kinds of skills this course should be teaching you relate to soldering cutting, shaping and texturing the silver plus polishing it. Also look for courses that teach you skills such as making jump rings, hooks and clasps for earrings. Finally what you should be looking for in a course is one that'll allow you to make a number of different pieces of jewelry from silver. The actual process of turning a piece of silver into a piece of jewelry is not only very technical, but also allows your artistic side to flourish. Once you've finished making silver jewelry either for yourself or for someone else, can prove extremely satisfying, especially as you watch the piece develop and grow.
