Basic Jewelry Making

All the Skills and Tools You Need to Get Started

Containing straightforward, expert instruction on the fundamentals of jewelry making, this richly illustrated, best-selling guide demonstrates how to make all kinds of funky and elegant bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and pendants using beads and wire.

Basic Jewelry Making covers all the basic techniques of jewelry making — planning a design, attaching fittings, making secure crimps, stringing beads, and forging metals. Best of all, the tools featured in the book are affordable and available, so you don't have to buy a lot of expensive equipment to get started.

Simple wire-bending techniques are demonstrated that show how to make beaded drop earrings as well as more elaborate necklace and bracelet designs. These are followed with advanced techniques for creating gallery-quality jewelry using metallic, sterling silver, and 14k gold wire.

Featuring design ideas by a variety of jewelers, Basic Jewelry Making includes descriptions of tools and materials, a guide to common types of beads, advice on proper lengths and fit, and inspiration for creating a wide range of styles. It is lavishly illustrated with 490 color photographs.

The paperback format with hidden spiral binding allows readers to lay the book flat on a worktable, leaving their hands free to work!
