"Mentock, a jewelry designer who draws inspiration from vintage and everyday objects, gives jewelry makers a glimpse of her design process in this collection. Most incorporate antique findings or ephemera (such as tintypes and vintage costume jewelry), and wirework and metalwork also feature prominently. Step-by-step directions are provided, and key stages are illustrated with photographs, but basic jewelry-making skills and supplies are required. Each project lists Mentock’s journal notes, which cover her creative decision-making, and design tips, which offer hints for changing items to suit your personal style. The author also presents an overview of basic wirework (including making your own findings) and metalwork. VERDICT Mentock’s aesthetic is more charm bracelet than sleek minimalism, so some jewelry makers will be drawn to her creative repurposing of vintage materials, while others will find her approach a little too everything-but-the-kitchen-sink." - Library Journal
