  • Description
A fully revised and updated edition of a classic craft instruction text, including new step-by-step techniques to reflect new materials and methodologies in metalworking.

Since its first publication in 1995, the Encyclopedia of Jewellery Making Techniques has been devoured by students borrowing a well-thumbed copy from their college library, established jewellers wishing to find out more about new techniques, as well as all those who just enjoy making jewellery as a hobby, who have kept it beside their workbench at home as a third hand to help them through a tricky process. Since then many books have been written about jewellery making. However, this volume still enjoys a huge following. To update it, a finished example now illustrates every technique to give a context to the method described. There are also new articles on harvesting scrap metal, designing jewellery, comparing metals' properties, and a wonderful demonstration of precious metal clay a material that didn't even exist when this book was first published. Doyenne of metal clay, Sue Heaser, gives a masterclass in this technique. Jewellery making is a rewarding and fascinating craft. Although you may find that you enjoy some aspects of it more than others, the techniques described here will give you a thorough understanding of all the basic information you need to create unique and professional looking pieces.

A fully revised and updated edition of a classic craft instruction text, including new step-by-step techniques to reflect new materials and methodologies in metalworking. Learn to craft exquisite brooches, tie pins, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and more. Make jewellery in materials both classic and contemporary, including gold, silver, plastics, and even precious stones. Step-by-step photographs help you to achieve professional results in your work.
