Jewellery-Making Basics

This practical easy-to-use book allows you to start making sensational necklaces, bracelets, brooches, rings, earrings, and more, even if you have never so much as picked up a pair of pliers before.

Additional diagrams give clarity to tricky stages, and provide troubleshooting tips. Techniques are interspersed with practical projects so that you can create beautiful items of jewellery as you learn, from simple silver rings to elegant stone-set pendants. Includes advice on practicing using inexpensive materials, and tips on designing you own unique pieces.
