Product Details


“Insightful tips and instructions for unique designs that inspire jewelry makers to create outside the box.” – Detroit News

“Kate McKinnon is a master of form and a delight to read. Her new book…even comes with a DVD so that you can have Kate guide you…as if she were right there with you.” –

“In the 60 minute DVD, she comes off relaxed and professional on screen and easily demonstrates that she not only knows her stuff when it comes to metal clay and metalsmithing, but she also knows how to teach, something you don’t always find with artists.” – Tammy Powley, editor, Guide to Jewelry Making

“Kate McKinnon’s fine silver metal clay pieces are stunning and wonderfully architectural in design. This book will not disappoint!” – Bead Unique

“As a teacher, Kate McKinnon is nonpareil. The book is perfectly beautiful in its presentation, with excellent clear and informative photographs, whether of the tools you will require or of the projects offered. The DVD reinforces aspects of the book which you may have missed.” – Australian Beading Magazine

“Kate is, quite possibly, the best jewelry engineer I have ever met. Her work is not only structurally sound, built to last and comfortable, but it has just that right edgy *snap* to make it truly artful.” – Jean Campbell, former editor, Beadwork magazine

“There is something to be said for an artist who focuses entirely on one medium with a relentless specificity. What happens is an alchemy of sorts, a magic that can only be forged from patience, tenacity and the willingness to dig deep.” – Margot Potter, The Impatient Crafter

“Sound introduction to the basics along with some innovative ideas. The enclosed DVD with sixty minutes of run time is as close as you can get to having a private tutorial session.” –

“This book is great for metal clay artisans of all levels. Refreshingly Kate treats metal clay not just as a stand-alone product but as one of the many tools and techniques that a metalsmith can employ in their design arsenal. Kate’s approach is to be applauded and (if more widely adopted) would certainly help metal clays acceptance in the traditional metalsmithing community.” – PMC Tips Blog
