The Frugal Jeweler - Political Junkie Jewels is the third eBook in The Frugal Jeweler series from http://www.timpyworks.com. The 111-page eBook teaches how to convert digital images into wearable art such as pins, earrings, and T-Shirt transfer graphics. "If you can create it and see it on your computer screen, you can turn it into some wearable political art" says Donna Grimstvedt, the book's author and the inventor of the process. "And you can create these 'make today/wear tomorrow' designs without any special equipment other than your computer and printer."
The book teaches how to combine digital images printed on overhead transparencies with specific kinds of adhesives, paints, and tapes, and with backgrounds such as fabric, recycled aluminum foil, and foam plates to create political pins and even earrings. It includes step-by-step illustrated instructions plus more than 20 pages of ready to use graphics. "You will find at least two elephants and a couple of buttons that say McCain," said Grimstvedt, "but since I'm a progressive you'll find mostly left-leaning designs. I made no attempt at being fair and balanced."
"You're the designer and the decider," continued Grimstvedt, "so you get to create and wear whatever messages you wish. Glue on a flatback Swarovski® crystal (or two or three or more) and next thing you know you'll have something that looks like real jewelry and not at all like the mass produced political buttons we are used to seeing and wearing." Political activists can speed up the process and keep costs to a minimum by printing their designs on paper instead of on overhead transparencies. The book includes step-by-step instructions for this paper process in addition to the process of combining transparencies with attractive backgrounds.
"This is the best book I have bought in years, and I'm only on page 25!" wrote Cathy from southern California.
