Sustainable Jewellery

Popped into my local library the other day and found a great book called `Sustainable Jewellery`by artist Julia Manheim. Its not a `how to` book,there are no projects to make but it is packed with some fabulous work done by her students and other up and coming artists,plus one or two that i was already aware of.
The chapters deal with aspects of sustainable jewellery such as The found object,conceptually recycled,the useful object and ephemeral jewellery.It is a really interesting read that of course deals with the notion of sustainability in jewellery and design in general with some great photos to compliment the text.I would recommend it,very inspirational!


Hooray! I have moved to my new home and am loving it even though everything is in disaray.
I have kept tabs on my tools and materials and have made sure to keep them handy and accessable so all being well I can start `making`again and very soon.
