The visual way to get hooked on jewelry making

Unlike other crafts that focus on a fairly narrow range of techniques and materials, jewelry making is very broad; the techniques encompass everything from bead stringing to metal stamping to working with different types of clay. More Teach Yourself VISUALLY Jewelry Making picks up where Teach Yourself VISUALLY Jewelry Making & Beading leaves off and gives you even more techniques to create new types of jewelry.

Beginning with a concise overview of jewelry making tools and essential techniques, the book gives you technique-specific chapters covering: basic metal work, metal cold connections, sculpting with metal clay, embellishing metal, designing with chain, using adhesives, and working with art glaze, resin, and leather. Plus, a final chapter devoted to example projects gives you instruction for making 12 unique pieces to add to your jewelry collection.

  • Step-by-step instructions are accompanied by clear, detailed photographs
  • Features a collection of appealing patterns using the techniques described
  • Online bonus features include a free bonus project and downloadable artwork and patterns
  • Other titles by Chris Franchetti Michaels: Teach Yourself VISUALLY Jewelry Making & Beading, Teach Yourself VISUALLY Beadwork, Beading VISUAL Quick Tips, and Wire Jewelry VISUAL Quick Tips

If you're a beginning to intermediate jewelry maker looking to add up-to-the-minute techniques to your repertoire, More Teach Yourself VISUALLY Jewelry Making has you covered.
