Editorial Reviews

Review

"Upcycling (recycling commonplace items that would normally end up in the trash into something beautiful or useful) continues to be trendy, and this mother-daughter team capitalize on the trend with this fun collection of jewelry. The projects are divided by media. Some materials (such as fabric) are easier to work with than others, but you'd be hard-pressed to identify the everyday items in some of the more striking pieces." --Library Journal

Great job, ladies!

The rest looked to cheap and I would be caught dead wearing any of it and I'm normally open to just about anything.

It has a lot of interesting ideas to tweak so I can make some very interesting pieces.

Green is in. One person's trash is another one's treasure. In "Jewelry Upcycled, " Sherri Haab & Michelle Haab work with both of those themes.

They start the book with a solid list of materials needed for their upcycling projects. Jewelry hobbyists probably have many of these materials already, such clasps and round nose pliers. Other tools, for the more advanced users, include a jewelry saw and electric drill.

Projects are divided up by the type of material used, including metal, plastic, glass, fabric and found items. With the large color photographs of the final project and of the steps along the way, crafters have a good idea of how involved a project is before they get started.

As a sewer, I knew that I had clasps on hand, so I used my own interpretation for a pair of the snap dangle earrings using jewelry findings I already owned (picture on my blog). People who are not currently creating jewelry will need to invest in some tools but can easily start with some simple projects, such as the earrings mentioned above.

The one criticism I have is that the projects really are quite a range, from beginning to advanced. Even though the instructions were good, it would help to label 'beginner' , 'intermediate', or 'advanced' at the first page of each project. That would make it easier for someone to decide (at a glance) if they want to get involved in a specific project.

Other projects I plan to try are cutting out shapes from shampoo bottles for jewelry and using electronics parts which gives jewelry a very modern appearance.

This book is filled with lovely ideas, but requires some serious tools. I have the usual array of jewelry making tools, as well as a decent workshop, and there were only a few projects I could make with what i own. Very pretty things, just out of my reach as a crafter.

I was impressed with many of the designs in this book (a few were sort of awful though!)....the designer really knows her mediums and mixes styles and materials really well. I did enjoy it and not only am inspired but will actually make some of the projects in here. Most intriguing to me was a necklace made with ironed bubble wrap....the finished project was ethereal and pretty and delicate.

A few areas were just not workable for me: tshirts made into brooches that looked like wadded up socks when done (ick). And necklaces made from plastic bottle bases just came out cheap to me.

That being said, everything else is great and clever and a launching pad to more designs. I'd recommend this highly, but it'll make you want to comb through everywhere to find neat objects to use.

Great stuff!

True to Sherri Haab's impossibly cool style comes another impressive volume - only this time, daughter Michelle Haab is along for the experience. Either Mom taught her well, or Michelle was blessed with the same vibrantly talented DNA Sherri has. This is one very cool book to have, especially as the trend to "go green" expands. Jewelry Upcycled! is not full of interesting ideas on recycling used materials that will sit in a drawer - the designs in this book are trendy, beautiful & fun. You'll want to wear the creations you make...a big improvement from many craft books that use recycled/reused materials. It's great fun to make treasures from trash - it has been my experience with most upcycle projects that the theory is great...the outcome, not so much. Maybe it's just me - but finding something I actually want to wear, display, or use, is a different monster. If the point is to keep stuff out of landfills then making something um, ugly, is not really helping...it's just changing the form of what will go to the landfill. It's fun to play - but better to play and have something cool to show for it when you're done. That's exactly what Sherri and Michelle have done in this book. There are many projects you will fall in love with - and none are too hard for the average crafter to make. That's one thing I love about Sherri Haab, her designs, and teaching process - she makes beautiful jewelry, but doesn't stop there. Her teaching style is amazing - she breaks down each step with clear instructions and photos, making it possible for even the inexperienced to create something to be really proud of.

Bottom line: Another great book by Sherri Haab - made even better with input from Sherri's daughter, Michelle Haab. Both women are clearly talented in both design and teaching, making it a pleasure to read/work from their book. Great job, ladies!

Once I got past the cover and into the meat of this book, I was pleasantly surprised to find projects that lent themselves to my own tastes. The instructions were user friendly and the photographs left nothing to be desired. Kudos!

I make my own handcrafted jewelry and needed some fresh ideas. You will be surprised. This book also takes a while to receive, so order early.

If you are involved with jewelry and making jewelry you'll be better off with a child's jewelry making book. one
