Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

No soldering is required to make these metal necklaces, rings, bracelets, and earrings; theyand#8217;re cold-connected, or crafted with such easy-to-learn skills as piercing, sawing, riveting, and joining, making them perfect for the beginning jeweler. Yet the results look completely professional. Work with a variety of metals in sheets, wires, and tubes. Create your own chains, ear wires, clasps, and other findings from wire jump rings. Learn metal texturing and finishing techniques such as chasing, etching, and adding a patina. Find out how to make simple settings for pearls, beads, and stones. Then set your creativity free on projects like a Circle Brooch with Thorn Clasp; Layered Cuff Bracelet, and Polka Dot Tube Earrings.

Synopsis:

Soldering has taken the crafting world by storm, and the well-illustrated and easy-to-follow instructions in this comprehensive guide thoroughly demystify the process. Beginners will learn how to master the basics and make 40 projects, ranging from a playful Turquoise Swirl Cuff to a mini-scrapbook foldout frame. Includes traceable patterns with glass-cutting lines, plus a page of pretty clip art to use.
