Paper Jewelry: 55 Projects for Reusing Paper
By Barbara Baumann, Photography by Flurina Hodel
With detailed instructions, templates, and colorful photography, this book shows how to craft fifty-five paper jewelry projects. Colorful and graphic designs range from necklaces, brooches, earrings, and bracelets to hair accessories. Learn how to find inspiration in a wide variety of recycled papers. Projects re-use maps, stationery, comic books, cardboard, magazines, and even candy wrappers. The various projects appeal to a wide variety of aesthetics, from the more traditional and refined to the more contemporary and flamboyant. There are also projects for a wide range of skill levels, making this an inspiring and practical book for everyone from beginners to established jewelry artists.
My thoughts: This book is perfect for summertime boredom. It is full of ideas for kids of all ages as well as adults. I haven't had the chance to begin any of the inspiring projects in the book yet, but I am definitely intrigued by the many full-color pages of exciting ideas! I can see myself and my kids making Christmas presents for their teachers!
