Unearth treasures of the past to create stunning found-object jewelry. Embark on a journey back in time to uncover tattered silk, faceted stones and other forgotten items, and learn how to give them new life as a pendant, ring or brooch. Found objects can be beautiful both for the unique, unexpected look they add to your work and for the stories we imagine them to tell. In the pages of Semiprecious Salvage, you will discover the excitement of reclaiming remnants of the past and reinterpreting their beauty in wearable works of mixed-media art. Step-by-step instructions guide you through the basics of wirework and creating basic jewelry findings, then encourage you to don your boots and get digging as you mix and match elements to create one-of-a-kind treasures. You'll learn to: Age modern "flashy" objects to create the distressed look of pieces with a past Combine jewelry elements with new and vintage fabrics for a soft, romantic touch Master the use of a soldering iron and a propane torch in crafting metal jewelry Incorporate plaster and resin into your work for added depth and intrigue Reinvent your artwork with your own Semiprecious Salvage and start sharing the stories of your own found objects today.
