Non-Precious Jewellery free pdf This will be a highly illustrated how-to-do-it book. There are very few such books specifically covering non-precious material techniques yet, but there has been a recent increase in the creative use of non-precious materials in jewellery-making.

Materials covered will include: rubber, silicone latex, plastics, resin, PVC, polypropylene, acrylic, cellulose acetate, nylon, wood, fibre, felt, cloth, paper, stone, metal, steel, aluminium, tin, copper, electroforming, feathers, leather, bone, ceramic, cork, Formica, buttons and other everyday objects.
