What's on the bookshelf - Semiprecious salvage, creating found art jewelry

You know I like recycling, reusing and all that stuff, so this book really fits in. Stephanie Lee shows how using mixed-media applications like sewing, plasterwork and altering found objects can come together to create jewelry pieces such as brooches, pendants, necklaces, earrings, bracelets and belts. There are practical jewelry-making techniques that you can incorporate into your own inspired pieces. Inspiration is good, and this book gives lots of ideas for crafting your own jewelry as well as ideas for locating found items whether it be on a nature walk, one's travels or in the comforts of home.
