Designing & Making Jewellery is the essential handbook for everyone interested in jewellery whether as a professional studio jeweller or as a recreational activity.
Topics include: range of tools and materials available; four projects explain how to make a pair of hairpins in acrylic, a silver band ring, a pair of knotted wire earrings and an oxidized silver penannular brooch; and finally, a section on design with suggested exercises to follow.
Illustrated work from more than thirty leading jewellers provides examples of techniques and materials, as well as inspiration to anyone making and wearing jewellery.
