Sachet with Flower

I am always looking for ways to reuse or salvage materials. I have found that great little projects like the one presented in this post is a wonderful way to use my ends of fabric that will otherwise be tossed out. There are lots of ways that you can think of to use a 6" x 6" piece of fabric; however, I have decided to use some of my leftover silk to make an elegant little sachet. I have also used some dried rose petals that were sitting in a glass dish, as the contents. The final project measures 5" x 5" and will make a great gift for someone special.

Book Review: Sherri Haab Jewellery Inspirations

Sherri Haab Jewellery Inspirations: Techniques and Designs from the Artist's Studio

This book was added to the studio library last year. I have not had a chance to do any of the projects, but I'm excited by the great selection of jewellery techniques and projects in the book. The author does a wonderful job of presenting the projects and providing easy to follow instructions. The selection of projects is interesting and several are unique pieces.

I have been designing jewellery for over ten years and I always love new resources, great tips and design inspiration. I also love the pictures of her studio, which has several pieces of furniture in common with my own studio. Her studio pictures can also serve as inspiration for your own creative space.

Let me know what you think of the book.
