Designing and Making Glass Jewellery

Mirka Janeckova

Description

Glass can add an unusual and ethereal quality to a piece of jewellery. Its transparency, colour and unpredictability make glass a unique material to work with, but it also presents its own challenges.

It covers specific properties of glass, tips for design and ideas for assembling a piece. It is a practical guide but, with a wealth of stunning finished pieces, and also provides inspiration for jewellers of all experiences.
