Set off your stylish new outfit with a fabulous hand-made brooch or surprise your friends and family members with a spectacular one-of-a-kind piece as a gift. This fantastic new title in the inspirational Magpie series will show you how to make 20 eye-catching pieces, with clear step-by-step instructions and full-color photographs throughout to take the thinking out of making. From tape-measure rosettes to Bakelite button cardigan clasps, these simple projects will teach you to cast, sew, knit, felt, bead, paint, print, engrave, and invent your own darling brooches. Starting with an easy-to-follow techniques section and exploring a range of materials such as wood, ribbon, metal, ceramic, resin, and found objects, the book will make you think outside the box when it comes to inventing your own brooches and pins. Suitable for jewelry-makers of all skill levels, particularly the novice crafter on a budget.

About the Author Louise Compagnone’s quirky handmade jewelry combines new, vintage, and found materials and has been sold in boutiques around the world. Growing up in a remote town in Western Australia, store-bought wasn’t always an option, so she learned to make everything from patchwork quilts and macramé owls to her grandma’s tomato sauce and most importantly, her own fun. Compagnone has worked as an editor and writer for nearly 10 years – covering topics including food, travel, fashion, and music. She currently lives in Brighton, UK.
