Easy-to-do techniques at the comfort of your kitchen table!

Authors Denise Peck and Jane Dickerson introduce simple wire- and metalworking techniques that have big impact. Working with precut metal blanks and thin gauge sheet, as well as with inexpensive and readily available tools, you can produce results similar to much more complex metalsmithing techniques.

Explore lashing, stitching, simple weaving, coils, spirals, twisted wire, and incorporating beads with wire. You'll be exposed to metal pieces being hole-punched, dapped, hammered, textured, colorized, and patinated. This book features thirty step-by-step projects that require only basic jewelry-making skills, but will result in stunning contemporary jewelry. Wire + Metal covers a wide range of styles that will appeal to beginner to advanced jewelry makers.
