Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Upcycling (recycling commonplace items that would normally end up in the trash into something beautiful or useful) continues to be trendy, and this mother-daughter team capitalize on the trend with this fun collection of jewelry. The projects are divided by media. Some materials (such as fabric) are easier to work with than others, but you'd be hard-pressed to identify the everyday items in some of the more striking pieces." --Library Journal

Upcycling"—turning commonplace items that would normally end up in the trash into something beautiful or useful—continues to be trendy, and mother-daughter authors Sheri and Michelle Haab capitalize on the trend with this fun collection of jewelry. The projects are divided by medium, and some materials (such as fabric) are easier to work with than others, but you'd be hard-pressed to identify the everyday items used in some of the more striking pieces. Some basic instructions are included, but knowledge of jewelry-making techniques and access to jewelry-making supplies are useful for the more complex projects.
