Description - Magical Metal Clay Jewellery by Sue Heaser

Want to make professional-looking metal jewellery without investing in silversmithing tools, equipment and training? This book shows how you can - with metal clay: one of the most popular materials used by commercial jewellers and hobbyists alike. Metal clay is an incredibly versatile material that can be moulded, folded, shaped, cut, woven, braided, carved and worked like simple modelling clay to produce an endless array of forms and effects. It is then baked in a domestic oven, and hardens into an alloy of silver and other metals. This book will allow you to master the core techniques in an afternoon, and show you how this material could keep you creatively engaged for a lifetime of jewellery making. Every technique is shown in detail with clear step-by-step photographs, demonstrating all the techniques you will need to set with stones, decorate with enamels, create textural effects using engraving and much, much more. Whatever your skill level and whatever your craft style you'll find this a rich and inspiring guide with tried-and-tested techniques explained in detail, as well as the cutting edge of metal clay creativity and materials. Written by Sue Heaser, one of the world's most highly regarded metal clay teachers, you will not only learn these simple metal clay techniques, you will also see how to put the skills to use with 20 gorgeous projects to create your own fine pieces of jewellery.
