This gorgeous guide to metal clay jewellery, written by jewellery designer Natalia Colman, features silver, copper and bronze clays. The book is divided up by technique, such as `Making connections after firing', `Setting stones' and `Working with colour'. It contains 17 jewellery projects including rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and decorative clasps: it is thorough enough to lead a beginner through the process from start to finish, but innovative enough to inspire even experienced jewellery-makers. Many of the projects include ideas for adapting the project or producing it in other metals. Natalia uses the clays in often new and innovative ways, such as using hand-drawn scratch-foam reliefs to create texture, oven-bake enamel to create colour, and, for those who like to adapt their jewellery according to their mood, she uses nuts and bolts to create a stunning ring with interchangeable heads. The book also contains a reference section at the back including firing guides for a large range of gemstones, ensuring that the reader is well-equipped to go on to design and make exactly the kind of jewellery they want.
