Handcrafted Metal Findings

Metalsmiths reveal new findings in jewelry trends!

Handcrafted Metal Findings features 30 step-by-step tutorials for metal findings that require only basic jewelry-making skills. Working with precut metal blanks and thin-gauge sheet metal, Denise, Jane, and several contributing artists have created great-looking findingsâ€"head pins, bead caps, bails, charms, connectors, cones, and more--all without a lot of effort. All the metalwork can be done with basic tools--no saws, no flex shaft, no oxy/acetylene tanks. Metal pieces are hole-punched, dapped, hammered, textured with stamps and tools, colorized, oxidized, and patinated. Construction techniques include simple soldering with a micro torch and cold connections such as riveting. Finished gallery pieces that incorporate some of the findings provide additional inspiration in this inspiration- and information-packed book.
