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!
