This is not the first "how to" book on creating jewelry with inexpensive or scrap materials. It is, however, one of the few to show how to make stylish jewelry that in no way betrays its humble origins. The 40 projects included were commissioned from a number of British designers and use easily obtainable tools and materials, including polymer clays, meltable plastic, buttons, fabrics, and paper to fashion all variety of pieces, from quilled filigree jewelry to a millefiori necklace to a captivating "ostrich brooch" made from sheet tin. Instructions for each piece include a list of materials and close-up illustrations of each step of the creative process. Once initial projects are completed, photographs of additional pieces using the same techniques may inspire readers to design their own unique jewelry. Highly recommended for public libraries.
