Soft Jewelry --What is it? How is it made? How can jewelry be "soft"? You'll find the answers to these questions and more in this book. You'll find soft jewelry is a truly contemporary craft, as well as an art form; it doesn't require expensive metals or exotic materials; it can, and often does, use the human body as the sculptural model. Soft jewelry is lively, adventurous and spontaneous! Materials? You can use feathers or bones, fine fabrics like plush, suede or ordinary knitting yarn or pieces of discarded cloth, papers, leather and a host of materials found in our everyday lives. Experiment with fabrics; design your pieces around the innovative use of available materials! The techniques are easy to learn and often require simple tools or none at all. The techniques used are simple ones like knotting and tying, wrapping or off-loom weaving, knitting, crochet or stitching. Synthetic or natural materials, easy to learn techniques and imagination ---a combination available to "jewelry-makers" of all ages and talents! You are certain to find this medium a means of highly personalized expression. Nancy Howell-Koehler is a craftsperson and a teacher of special workshops in non-metallic jewelry.
