Book Description

2 Oct 2010
This is a beautifully illustrated guide to creating eye-catching jewellery out of found or recycled objects, at very little cost. Sarah starts by demonstrating how to put together a basic tool kit for under GBP10 and then takes the reader through 25 projects, which include creating pieces from vintage earrings found in charity shops or car boot sales, seaglass washed up on the beach, driftwood, coins, vintage beads, old washers and buttons. The clear step-by-step instructions and easy-to-follow projects are suitable for both beginners and intermediate makers, they are easily adapted to alternative found objects and enable the reader to create their own pieces using the skills they have learnt. The last section addresses good places to find materials, and advice on setting up a jewellery business if you want to take your hobby further.

More About the Author

Every coat I have has pockets full of daft things: I hear shells rattling about with bits of plastic when I pull one on to face the school run, I stroke acorn cups while I'm waiting for my cappucino in the cafe; I scrunch bits of moss and tangled sea-string while I'm trying to find my gloves. I am and always have been a bit of a collector: not of high value, status ridden things that you have to be careful with. Just little, curious, quirky things that are everywhere in everybody's everyday life. I just like to pick them up, look at them and put them in my pocket. Then I like to make them into jewellery later.

Review

Well-written and well-illustrated … the style is chatty and easy to read, ideal for the absolute beginners at whom the book is aimed. --Findings

I have bought this book from a local gallery and think it makes a great Christmas present for anyone who is even slightly creative. The jewellery is really easy to make and the pieces are fun, original and cheap too - which is even better! Would definitely recommend this.
