Eclectic contemporary jewelry of all sorts is found in these two practical guides. The projects by Adelson and others require expertise in working with acrylic thermoplastics and liquid resins. Some of the finished jewelry items are reminiscent of mid-20th-century Bakelite. Barta (Hip To Stitch) uses a combination of beads and found materials to create unique necklaces. Such unlikely things as watch parts, playing cards, and printed tin containers are all raw materials for her projects. These unusual books would make good additions to public libraries.
