Bookcase Tour Tuesday - Mixed Media Jewellery

Mixed Media Jewellery was a Christmas present last year from the Man. It's another piece that I love for the images as well as the technical advice it offers.


Before it leaps into projects, this book starts off with chapters on materials, some basic jewellery techniques and of the design process. While I'm not a follow-a-project type of gal, I do really appreciate the very clear and beautifully photographed instructions that each project chapter gives. The projects cover a wide range of materials, many recycled, as well as techniques. It's then followed by an eye-candy filled, "Gallery" double page spread. The book ends with interviews with all the artist contributors, an interesting read. It's an enjoyable book that makes the mind tick and helps ideas flow.

Hi Melanie. Thank you so much for running the competition and I'm over the moon to have won.
Your book this week looks fantastic. Don't you wish there were more hours in the day, or better still, that you didn't need to sleep?
