An ideal introduction, this manual details the craft of making metal jewelry by pairing expert guidance with clear, explicit photographs. Beginning with the basic tools and skills necessary to master before complex projects can be executed successfully, every stage of the metal jewelry art is discussed–from practicing proper safety to learning how to cut, solder, buff, and stamp metals. Example projects–in styles from contemporary and funky to classic and elegant–include pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings, and chains.
