The project was added to your Jewelry Box.
Do you have hardware pieces that caught your fancy, but you’ve wondered what to do with them? Fanciful Findings will help you “repurpose timeless parts into unique treasures!”
This 32-page book has 21 projects that feature a variety of unique findings including hex nuts, gears, bottle caps, keys, hinges, corks and mint tins, just to name a few. You’ll learn how to repurpose these pieces into beautiful pieces of jewelry. The book incorporates techniques are familiar to jewelry makers along with techniques that may not be quite as familiar such as using distress inks and decoupage.
Fanciful Findings takes you on a journey through your collection of vintage pieces to make pieces such as a watch FOB necklace, gear earrings, pop top bracelet, butterfly bottle cap necklace to a hinge necklace, key charm necklace and, my favorite, the cork slices bracelet. You’ll be able to showcase your creativity repurposing a mint tin into a wearable piece of art with the butterfly necklace project and the bottle cap watch necklace.
New to jewelry making? This book has you covered with basic techniques explained with charts in the back of the book.
Fanciful Findings is great for anyone who wants to make unusual jewelry with an industrial look. New jewelry makers can be successful with the step-by-step project instructions and the charts and instructions for basic jewelry techniques included. More advanced jewelry makers will find lots of inspiration from this book.
