The comprehensive guide to the craft of jewelry making!


Craft your path to becoming a jewelry artisan with The Complete Jewelry Making Course: Principles, Practice and Techniques: A Beginner's Course for Aspiring Jewelry Makers. This must-have art book covers every step of the jewelry making process, from creating original design concepts to making professionally finished pieces of jewelry. Author Jinks McGrath lists all required tools and equipment, explains their uses, advises on safe working practices, and then guides her readers through every stage of the jewelry making process in a series of carefully structured tutorials. Beginners and enthusiasts will learn:


  • How to turn an original idea into a workable design and, ultimately, a beautiful piece of jewelry
  • How to work with precious and semiprecious stones, metals, glass, plastic, resin, and wood
  • How to present and sell jewelry to dealers and wholesalers


Clear, full-color, step-by-step photos demonstrate the methods of fashioning metals by heating, hammering, casting, soldering, riveting, polishing, finishing, and adding surface decoration. At-a-glance panels explain how to apply the techniques and choose the correct materials, from crystals to sterling silver. While this thorough, easy-to-understand jewelry guide is a perfect gift for adults who love crafts, it's also the perfect how-to-guide for transforming hobbyists into true professionals. This complete guide is also ideal for fashion and jewelry courses.
