by Linda Peterson
While slightly bonkers, this rather ingenious book demonstrates how you can breathe new life into items that would otherwise be destined for the recycling bin. Linda Peterson uses ring pulls from drink cans to create belts, earrings, brooches and even a rather pretty crochet bag. She takes bicycle inner tubes and transforms them into tassel earrings, a big floral ring and a chunky cuff bracelet. Each of the 35 projects has clear step-by-step instructions with photographs to guide you through the process. And at the end of it, you can be sure you will have a truly unique piece of art.
