Summary (from Goodreads)This beautifully illustrated guide shows teens how to create eye-catching jewelry out of found or recycled objects—at very little cost. Some fun projects include making pendants out of pebbles; sewing a stylish cuff using scraps of fabric; and fashioning a funky charm bracelet out of extra screws, washers, and other toolbox trinkets. The easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions are suitable for both beginner- and intermediate-level crafters. This book also provides bonus tips on the tools you need to get started, where to find materials, and how to make money from your jewelry.

I've always been a crafty person, so when I saw this book I knew it'd be one I'd enjoy. I'm always looking for new craft ideas, and this book was full of some really creative ones! There are a few things I know I'll be making right away - hello, Juliet tiara! - and some I'm planning on making later on. A lot of these projects only require minimal amounts of material and time, which makes them great for teens such as myself.

If you're a crafter like me or just looking for something fun and easy to start with, I definitely recommend you check out Junk-Box Jewelry
