If you’re looking for some alternative materials to add to your jewelry projects, I encourage you to take a look at Nicole Noelle Sherman’s new book, Making Designer Jewelry from Hardware, Gems, and Beads. It’s packed with funky designs based on the nuts and bolts (literally) of the hardware store aisles: she incorporates simple stainless steel, aluminum, copper, brass and tin hardware, such as nuts, bolts, washers and tubing, into modern jewelry pieces.

    I’m a New Zealand artist that make one-of-a-kind hardware jewelry. I love making hardware jewelry because there are a big variety of hardware items that enable me to be creative and original in my work. I like making unique jewelry that no one else has. It’s something different that makes you stand out from the crowd. You can see my work on http://www.zesteefashion.com and let me know what you think.

    It seems gold/silver use in jewelry is becoming less and less.
