Favorite Picks and Projects from Handcrafted Jewelry 2012
Before I discovered beads, I would make jewelry out of anything I could get my hands on. When we were kids, my sister and I made earrings out of thick watercolor paper, strung bracelets with buttons and thread, and spent hours on tiny needlepoint pendants. Little did I know that what I was actually doing was creating mixed media jewelry! My sister and I just thought we were having fun!
Turns out that making mixed media jewelry is a lot more fun as a grownup. Maybe it's because I have more beading tools and a huge workshop in my garage where I can play, but every once in a while, I get the urge to create a piece of jewelry with something besides the beads. And in the new Handcrafted Jewelry 2012, I found loads of mixed media jewelry projects — most of them pretty easy — that I can take with me out to my garage workshop when I want to play!
