Magical Metal Clay

Amazingly Simple No-Kiln Techniques for Making Beautiful Accessories
Sue Heaser

Description

Metal clay is an accessible and incredibly versatile material which is used by professional jewellery makers and hobbyists alike. This book concentrates on silver clay which is the easiest kind to use because it can be fired without a kiln. It shows you how to master all the basic techniques of working with metal clay while later chapters cover more advanced techniques.

The 20 gorgeous projects are shown in detail with clear step-by-step photographs. There are pendants, necklaces, earrings, bracelets, charms, brooches, beads, cufflinks and rings and many of the projects give alternative ideas for developing your skills. Embellishment techniques are shown in detail from setting stones and gilding to enamelling with resin, adding inlay, engraving, and oxidising for luscious colours.

Whatever your skill level and whatever your craft style you will find this a rich and inspiring guide with tried-and-tested techniques explained in detail. A few projects that need kiln firing are given at the end of the book to show what can be achieved if you decide to go further with this fabulous material.
