Book Review: Paper Jewelry

jewelryPaper Jewelry has 55 projects for reusing paper within it. The projects are split up by the type of paper that you use in order to create: Maps, Booklets, Newspaper, Candy Wrappers, Cardboard / Cards, Stationery, Magazines, Napkins, Books, and Comics (and a few more than that too!) The beginning of the book talks about how you should start by collecting a lot of paper and keep a paper diary so you can see small swatches of all of the paper you have collected.

For each of the pieces of jewelry included in the book there is a list of materials you will need and tools you will need and then instructions on how to make it.  The instructions are step by step and even include photos to help you along with folding, etc. Throughout the book there are also tips to help you out along the way.

It is amazing all the different ways you can use the paper to make some wonderful jewelry!

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review.
