|About the Author||Originally from Oregon, with a stop in Wyoming, Deryn Mentock got to Texas as fast as she could. There, she wrangles a husband, two young men, an energetic pup, and a nice collection of cowboy boots. She has been passionate about art, especially jewelry design, for as long as she can remember. When she’s not traveling to teach, or treasure hunting, she is in the studio designing pieces that combine metal, gemstones, and unique well-loved treasures in unexpected ways. She is a nationally recognized instructor who loves teaching technique and design, as well as sharing insight into her creative process. She also enjoys teaching online workshops from her “Jewelry Works“ site. Her design work includes work done for Michaels stores nationwide, the Ice Resin design team and the Industrial Chic line of jewelry findings. Her jewelry and artwork have been featured in numerous books and magazines, including a feature article and cover for Belle Armoire Jewelry.|
|Author 1||Deryn Mentock|
|Editorial Review||"Mentock, a jewelry designer who draws inspiration from vintage and everyday objects, gives jewelry makers a glimpse of her design process in this collection. Most incorporate antique findings or ephemera (such as tintypes and vintage costume jewelry), and wirework and metalwork also feature prominently. Step-by-step directions are provided, and key stages are illustrated with photographs, but basic jewelry-making skills and supplies are required. Each project lists Mentock’s journal notes, which cover her creative decision-making, and design tips, which offer hints for changing items to suit your personal style. The author also presents an overview of basic wirework (including making your own findings) and metalwork. VERDICT Mentock’s aesthetic is more charm bracelet than sleek minimalism, so some jewelry makers will be drawn to her creative repurposing of vintage materials, while others will find her approach a little too everything-but-the-kitchen-sink." - Library Journal|
