Jewelry From Found Objects - Stackpole Books

Here it is, the cover of my upcoming book, "Jewelry From Found Objects" being published by Stackpole Books. It is due to hit bookstores and Amazon this spring. For those of you who are hearing about this for the 1st time the book focuses on the use of found objects, recycled and reclaimed materials in jewelry. The book includes jewelry made by me as well as artists from around the world who use unconventional materials to make their jewelry. It also includes some simple step-by-step instructions on the use of cold connections to create jewelry without a torch plus helpful tips on sourcing materials. Stay tuned for the book release date.
