Designed to make people look twice, Junk Jewelry s beauty lies in featuring otherwise ordinary items in artful, surprising ways. What looks like a metal cuff turns out to be made of safety pins; translucent hoop earrings are actually computer chips; and a drawer pull transforms into a pendant. As the world goes green, there s never been a better time to pack a visual punch with recycled materials and everyday objects or mementos found in a dresser, at a flea-market, or in the loft. But it isn t just about throwing together useless bits without some thought - artist and designer Jane Eldershaw shares prin-ciples for assembling it successfully without sacrificing imagination. You ll learn how to find inspiration, create aesthetic rhythm and pull off wearing the pieces with panache. The 25 projects featured here are perfect for anyone who appreciates thrift-store funkiness and avant-garde fashion. With step-by-step instructions, tips on finding the best raw materials and instructional illustrations, Junk Jewelry is both a thoughtful how-to manual and a unique, intellectually satisfying style guide.
