Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

The creative use of wire is the unifying factor in mixed-media and jewelry artist Cirincione's (Collage Lost and Found) collection of funky found-object projects. Wire letters are attached to cards, and wire rings join button chains. Brass tags, game pieces, and stitched-down photos are among the treasures transformed into necklaces and greeting cards. This is a fun addition to any crafts collection.
