Lately, I have been consuming one jewelry-making book after another. One that stands out as being especially good is A Charming Exchange by Kelly Snelling and Ruth Rae. The book grew around an actual charm exchange the two authors were involved in. The book highlights how to use found objects into jewelry making, as well as more traditional techniques.
Along with beautiful photographs, there are some really intriguing instructions for some very unique links and connections. This book is perfect for someone, like myself, who is at the point where you are ready to move from beginner-level to an intermediate level.
