Start Making Jewellery: Make Your Own Beautiful Jewellery


    This practical and easy-to-use book allows you to start making wonderful necklaces, bracelets, brooches, rings, earrings and more, even if you have never so much as picked up a pair of pliers before. Large, clear photographs guide you every step of the way, from setting up your workspace and transferring designs to basic filing, sawing and soldering skills. Additional diagrams give clarity to tricky stages, and there are also examples of what can go wrong and how to fix it. Techniques are interspersed with practical projects so that you can create beautiful items of jewellery as you learn, from simple silver rings to elegant stone-set pendants. Includes advice on practicing using inexpensive materials, and tips on designing your own unique pieces. Nicola Hurst gained a degree in jewellery making in 1990 and began her own jewellery making business five years later. She teaches adult evening classes to complete beginners as well as more advanced makers. She also teaches private classes from her own workshop. Her jewellery sells in galleries and shops all around the UK.
