The Absolute Beginner's Guide: Making Metal Clay Jewelry
Gifted by Kalmbach Books
Reviewed by Kelly Spence
Let's face it: Metalwork as a jewelry-making technique is just not easily accessible to everyone. If you've ever wished you could make beautiful metal jewelry but just don't have the means to do it, then The Absolute Beginner's Guide: Making Metal Clay Jewelry by Cindy Thomas Pankopf is the book you've been waiting for! Making Metal Clay Jewelry is the essential resource to learning about metal clay as a jewelry-making medium. This book doesn't assume anything; it starts at the beginning, explaining just what metal clay is, going over what tools and supplies you will need to work with it (and offering thrifty substitutes and alternatives when applicable), and describing different techniques--all before you are even introduced to one project! You are allowed to take your time and really familiarize yourself with the medium before diving in.
Then, the rest of the book is dedicated to different gorgeous projects, techniques, and designs, from the basics to special techniques. You'll learn how to make pendants, earrings, rings, and charms. You'll learn how to stamp, set stones, make molds, and do repairs. You'll learn how to make pieces from lace, feathers, leaves, and more! By the time you're done with this book, you'll be an expert on making metal clay jewelry!
