Metal clay starts as clay and turns into metal. Does it get any more magical? Now it does—with Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry. Author Sherri Haab takes this compelling material, today's hottest craft item, to the next level, brilliantly combining it with other media ranging from the timeless to the unexpected. Ribbons, gold leaf, pottery shards, transparent resin, polymer clay, leather, and more are used to create stunning jewelry. Beautiful photography showcases these innovative pieces, and full step-by-step instructions make it easy to re-create them. New formulations of metal clay and newly developed firing techniques are presented clearly so that crafters can achieve professional results. Sophisticated enough for artists yet simple enough for beginners, Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry is the only book that blends metal clay with such a variety of mixed media to make magic.
