Description

25 gorgeous how-to projects

Interest in beading and jewelry-making continues to grow. Making Designer Jewelry from Hardware, Beads, and Gems offers DIY crafters and jewelry-makers a fun, funky approach to jewelry constructed from not only glass beads, pearls, and semi-precious gemstones, but shows how to incorporate simple stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass and tin hardware, such as nuts, bolts, washers, and tubing, into stunning, innovative, and modern jewelry pieces.

Using hardware in jewelry has become popular, and features an aesthetic twist that mixes "high" and "low" --inexpensive and common metal hardware with favorite bead-store jewels.
