This is a beautifully illustrated guide to creating eye-catching jewellery out of found or recycled objects, at very little cost.
I start by demonstrating how to put together a basic tool kit for under £10 and then I take 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.
