Format: Paperback
Well, I never realised that so much could be made from the stuff that gets all too readily thrown away everyday; and this book is crammed full of ideas for making great looking jewellery from it all. Importantly, it's extremely wearable too and wouldn't look out of place on a night out with the girls, on a catwalk or a Cannes red carpet. Very useful too to get a list of stores that stock recycled materials (if you can't find any of your own!) Aside from looking swanky, a major cash saving could be made following the tips and techniques contained within. Plus, not that I feel I'm helping to save the planet single handedly with each brooche, trinket, bracelet, earring, etc... but I get a self satisfied sense of achievement from doing my little bit - and getting creative with it!

Out of date ideas (where do you find floppy discs these days?) and some ugly projects, but useful information on how to achieve different techniques. Overall disappointed as bought as a gift for a friend and felt embarrassed giving her it.

What a great way to learn contemporary jewellery techniques. Not only does this book show you the plethora of FREE materials we have out there to use, but it also shows you step by step (with images) how to do the silversmithing involved. My personal favourite is the necklace made from parts of floppy discs! Such a good idea! Can't wait for the next book - would love some advanced projects to try next :D
