Utilizing stringing and wireworking techniques accessible to beginners, this mixed metal jewelry guide also offers boutique-style designs that will captivate the more experienced beader. With no metalworking required, detailed instructions are provided for 30 unique projects incorporating various metals such as silver, gold, copper, brass, PMC, and more. Techniques for distressing metal - such as using liver of sulfur, other patinas, and hammering - are included, as well as ideas for mixing metals and using faux metals. Background information is given on each type of metal, from common properties to shopping tips, care, and cleaning.
Geared toward the novice beader, this comprehensive introduction to making jewelry begins with "Bead Shopping 101" - a description of basic beads and how to differentiate between bead varieties and colors. Thirty projects are presented in a step-by-step manner with full-color illustrations to simplify techniques such as stringing, crimping, and the proper use of jump rings. All the designs reflect a modern sensibility for creating fashionable, boutique-quality jewelry.
