Publisher's Description

Experience metal clay like never before.

Going far beyond most other metal clay books currently available, Metal Clay for Jewelry Makers covers basics and much more. Inside, you'll explore a range of techniques including forming hinges and beads; working with paper clay; adding gemstones, glass, and ceramics; and syringing, burnishing, texturing, and using patinas.

You'll discover stunningly showcased silver and base metal clays perfected in soft clay, paper, and paste forms. Sue also covers the materials that are often used in conjunction with metal clay, including embellishments, stones, and findings.

After covering materials, Sue dives right into techniques, from the basics to specific advanced techniques. She explores the use of additional materials as well—applying resin, mounting stones, enameling, engraving and more. A section on zero waste—how to conserve and reuse expensive metal clay remnants—completes the how-to section.

Packed with more than 500 photographs, this book will give you a clear guide to both the process and end product or effect. While no projects are in the book, finished projects with tips and techniques are spread throughout and provide inspiration for you to explore metal clay and to use your newfound jewelry-making skills with this innovative material, often dubbed “magical clay.”
