Bubble Wrap Necklace
Designed by Steven James
Steven is an enthusiastic artist and teacher who uses a variety of recycled ma-terials in his work. On his choice to use bubble wrap for this project, he comments:“I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of manipulating materials and thescience behind creativity. The process of fusing the bubble wrap takes it from onematerial to something incredibly different, while just slightly retaining some of itsoriginal form.” This necklace makes the most of bubble wrap’s close resemblanceto mother-of-pearl. By simply cutting circles of bubble wrap one achieves an elegantyet sophisticated design.The technique of heat fusing layers of plastic used in this project is versatile andcan be used with a variety of plastic materials (including various colors of bubblewrap and plastic shopping bags) to create projects. Creative designs ranging frombracelets to earrings are possible using pieces of fused plastic.

Rated 4/5
Unlike many books on using recycled material, this book really looks at some of the difficult aspects of using recycled material, including safety measures needed to use plastic. As a consequence, many of these projects require a serious investment in power tools and safe equipment. So it is not a book for the beginning jeweler. The directions are very clear and well illustrated with photographs. It has the best explanation of making rivets that I've encountered so far.
