Product description

This is a complete course in designing and making jewellery. Carefully structured tutorials guide you through every stage of the process, revealing how to translate inspired ideas into workable, wearable designs, and you'll find professional advice on presenting and selling your work. Learn about tools, equipment and safe working practices; how to build an inspirations file; select suitable materials and transfer your designs; work with precious and semi-precious stones, metals, glass, plastic, resin and wood. Clear, step-by-step photographs demonstrate all the techniques you will need, at-a-glance panels explain the effect that different techniques have on a variety of metals, and practical exercises provide guidance in tricky skills - with ideas for trying these out on inexpensive substitutes before using your chosen materials.
