Today I have an extra special giveaway, Cico Books has provided 3 copies of the book Upcycled Jewelry: Bags, Belts, and More by Linda Peterson to giveaway to you lucky Craft Gossip readers. Leave a comment in today’s post by February 14th, 2015 and you will be in the running for this super creative and innovative book.
I have seen a lot of recycled jewelry and accessories in my day as it’s one of my all time faves to make but in this new book there are a whole bunch of projects that feature really innovative techniques. There are quite a few projects as well that feature materials I have never seen used in such unique and pretty ways! If you like this kind of thing I bet you will be as inspired as I am.
