These super talented individuals wrote excellent tutorials. I've selected them to feature because each design uses a unique approach.
Cat Ivins of the Olive Bites blog not only recycled bottle tops and buttons but her amazing ring clamp pendant tutorial allows for interchangeable inserts! Who knew hardware store clamps for hoses could be cool for jewelry making?
I wrote "insanely brilliant" in the comments of Michelle's blog post, In which Mich gets overexcited at the hardware store. She used the spring for holding window screens as unusual bracelet clasps. They stretch making the bracelet very easy to put on!

Want to get some frustrations out of your system? Check out the easy Hammered Copper Washer Pendant Tutorial from Gelt Designs' New Jewelry a Day blog. The texturing was done with a border or goldsmith hammer. If you have a blunt chisel, that might work too.
