Recycling old jewelry as a hobby requires a good imagination and a large stash of material. Hanna has both, as evidenced in these projects, mostly for necklaces. Users will need to substitute their own found objects, but this book is a rich source of ideas. -- Library Journal, Jun 2009
About the Author
Amy Hanna has been creating and selling jewelry for nearly a decade. A collector at heart, Amy began haunting flea markets and yard sales more than 20 years ago, and it was always the vintage jewelry, metals, and rosary beads that caught her eye. Her collections lay in drawers and vintage jewelry boxes for years until a friend encouraged her to create. Unable to find jewelry that represented her personal style, Amy began making one-of-a-kind pieces from her beloved collections.
