Jewelry From A Toolbox

Rogge, Hannah

Book - 2006
Average Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5.
There is a new population of crafters out there: independent, innovative, and fearless, they thrive on making something out of nothing and are far more interested in showing off their style than their money. Their spirit of do-it-yourself iconoclasm is perfectly captured in Hardwear, a fascinating new book by industrial designer Hannah Rogge that presents 24 striking, easy-to-make pieces of jewelry fashioned from nuts and metal washers, S hooks and O rings, rubber sheeting and rubber tubing, and other inexpensive, readily available hardware. Most of the projects for necklaces, bracelets, and earrings featured in this unique and unexpected book can be completed in just a few hours, and all of them can be made on a minimal budget. The book is divided, like the aisles of a hardware store, into chapters according to the particular pieces of hardware employed. And lest readers confuse Hardwear with any other craft book on the shelf, its rectangular shape and metallic cover resemble the geometric structure and hard casing of an actual toolbox. Hardwear is sure to inspire crafters everywhere to view their local hardware store in an entirely new light.

Recommend stainless steel hardware where possible, it looks and stays much more brilliant. It does cost a wee bit more, but worth it for your efforts.
