Rocks are my favourite, but wire-wrapping will only get you so far, so I want to learn how to drill holes into rocks!

Every holiday I collect stones and shells from the beach and the forest, and set them on my desk. I think it is way more fun when I can lear to make jewelry of it and take them outside!

Earrings or a necklace from abandoned snail shells. (made those already)
Using vibrant flowers in a way that they would not wilt for a brooch/necklace/ring would be cool.

I would love to see elements that involve water because I spend more time wet than dry.

Once saw a pair of porcupine needle earrings and loved them. They were so dramatic and simple all at once. Would love to make some buttons, jewelry, etc.. from them

I am all about recycling, I love making jewelry and would like to use more found objects, but admittedly my creativity is somewhat lacking, this book sounds avesome.

I'm always collecting the bits of fleece from fences, you never get enough to make anything big but I'm sure there's jewellery to be fashioned form these bits of discarded sheep!

Summers I lived on the beach as a kid collecting everything from beach glass to shells to pebbles and even some small odd shaped pieces of drift wood that would make some awesome jewelry.

I think I would use this book to help me come up with a good idea for wine corks. They inspire me I always keep them thinking I'll come up with a good idea since they seem like such a useful medium. But no, I never think of anything more than buttons or trivets. Tongue

Wood! I love seeing the things people come up with from making their own wood beads. Each tree has a different beautiful color inside.

I would love to make some wire wrapped crystal or rocks found on various travels but I fear, since I dont know how to do it, I would lose them. I really need to a book on the correct way to wire wrap and use found objects!
