Back Cover Information

Collage is the perfect technique for creating unique jewelry with special keepsakes as focal points, from family heirlooms to vintage finds. This unique guide shows how to combine collage with stamping, wire wrapping, soldering and other techniques on 25 varied mixed-media memory projects. Make it Your Own Tips suggest how each piece can be modified to reflect personal milestones and relationships. From Button Charm Earrings and a Photo Transfer Pin to a Baby Spoon Necklace and a Casino Bracelet, each project is a starting point for creating your own evocative pieces.
