Description: Title: Unexpected Findings- 50+ Clever Jewelry Designs featuring everyday components
Author: Michelle Mach
Publisher: Interweave, 2014
Give new life to your jewelry stash! Hardworking, functional findings usually take a backseat to beads and other jewelry-making materials. Unexpected Findings features a completely new approach to working with clasps, bails, bead caps, head pins and other findings by focusing on nontraditional uses for them: bead frames become connectors, toggle clasps become pendants, bead cones are woven to form a bracelet cuff. The possibilities are endless.
Author Michelle Mach offers a thorough overview of the many different findings available, as well as essential tools; other materials, such as beads, wire, and cords and ribbons; and basic techniques. Ideas for modifying purchased findings with patinas, hammering, painting, and other techniques expand the design possibilities. Fifty projects by Michelle and an all-star cast of contributing designers each showcase one or more findings, in a new or unusual way. The designs include necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, some of which can be taken apart and reassembled to become different pieces of jewelry.
With Unexpected Findings, you'll never look at findings the same way again!
