The best books on mixed media and recycled jewelry

I tried to stick with books for this list that really embodied what I consider the spirit of working with mixed materials and recycled components.  There are many other books that could have been included, but you'll find them listed under the major media that they deal with: polymer clay, wire, metal clay, etc.  I hope the reviews linked below will help you in your jewelry work.  If you're looking for mixed media books that focus on non-wearables, check out the reviews on Mixed Media Artist!
