Description - Jewelry Architect by Kate McKinnon

Innovative jewelry artist Kate McKinnon takes you on a creative journey of techniques and projects in The Jewelry Architect as she uses a variety of materials and tools to create gallery-quality bracelets, necklaces, and rings. Beautiful color photographs and clearly written instructions give jewelry artists the building blocks to combine wire, metal clay, beadwork, and traditional metalsmithing to create one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces. Learn how to merge techniques to form 16 uniquely designed projects, and also how to manufacture a variety of components such as clasps, hooks, earring findings, and ring bases to customize your work. And included instructional DVD demystifies key skills and offers extra design inspiration. Revel in Kate's signature style--an earthy m?lange of metal, beads, and fibers--as she shares tips on the best ways to reinforce beadwork, bind edges, string components, form metal clay ring bands, fuse rings, create head pins, and so much more.
