Snappy, Jazzy JewelryBook - 1995
Make snazzy, jazzy, pizzazzy jewelry out of inexpensive materials that you probably already have around the house or can find quickly and easily. Turn a soda bottle into a bangle, bay leaves into earrings, seashells into a pin, an old shirt cuff into a bracelet, dog tags and a coat hanger into a necklace, and much more. No one will ever guess that the eye-catching accessories you're wearing started ont as plastic bags, corks, aluminum tins, orange peels, flowers, pebbles, nutshells, nails, bolts, pencils, curtain rings, buttons, embroidery thread, tinfoil, and other outrageously ordinary objects. Make beads out of fun-to-work-with polymer clay, and create a wide range of pretty pieces out of paper. Bright, vibrant full-color photographs and drawings show kids how to make scores of earrings, bracelets, rings, necklaces, brooches, barrettes, and even cuff links -- many take only a few minutes to put together. Have fun making a whole wardrobe full of treasures that range from the sweet and daintyto the bold and funky -- but are all wonderful, wearable, and one of a kind.
