Note: This listing is for a BOOK and not a piece of jewellery

Making Vintage Jewellery presents 25 fabulous pieces of vintage inspired jewellery for you to make yourself with ideas on how to vary projects for a wealth of different looks. The classic and timeless styles have wide appeal with influences from the refined elegance of the 1910s through to the chic glamour of the 1950s.

The book features an introductory section divided into comprehensive sub-sections, covering tools and basic techniques used throughout the book, with step-by-step photographs to illustrate. The following five sections each focus on a decade from the 1910s to the 1950s, and feature historical background to the designs, step-by-step diagrams and a list of materials, which are a mixture of easy-to-find vintage and modern beads, textiles and findings.

The book is ideal for people wanting to experiment and make unusual jewellery from a diverse range of materials and different techniques. Many of the projects feature sewing and textiles, such as the currently popular ribbon flower corsages, pleated ribbon bracelets and chokers made using old-fashioned methods. Wire also features heavily in projects such as the impressive twisted wire neckpieces, charm and dangle earrings and simple cotton cord lariats.

With projects to suit different abilities, Making Vintage Jewellery offers a host of ideas for combining small pieces of antique and vintage textiles, beads and buttons with modern findings to create impressive contemporary jewellery with a nod to the past.

Please note that this listing is for a book which will be posted to you at the address provided by Etsy unless otherwise stated. It is quite heavy and therefore expensive to post overseas, hence the shipping costs. Note that I have kept the shipping fees well below what they actually cost, and overall, the total price of the book and shipping is generally less that it would be if ordered via Amazon.

After I receive payment, your book will be posted within 48hrs. All books are sent via first-class mail from the UK. Insurance and/or alternative shipping methods are available on request but at extra cost.

Note: If you want the book to be signed or if you would like a message to be written inside, please put the wording you would like in the book in the note to seller box at checkout.
