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. 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, a variety of metals and beads. Clear, step-by-step photographs demonstrate all the techniques that you will need, from manipulating metals by heating, hammering and casting to methods of soldering, riveting, polishing, finishing and adding surface decoration. At-a-glance panels explain the effect that different techniques have on metals, and practical step-by-step exercises provide guidance in tricky skills - with ideas for trying these out on inexpensive substitutes before using your chosen materials.show more
