The New Encyclopedia of Jewellery Making Techniques
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.
