Pewter has strong hobbyist appeal in the crafts market. Easily punched, cut and modeled, pewter is perfect for relief work and embossing, and pewter work can be combined beautifully with other popular crafts, such as beading, woodworking and paper crafts. Modern pewter is also inexpensive, lead-free and readily available.

Pewter Craft is a collection of 40 original projects that are easy to follow, quick to complete and encourage improvisation. Beginners will find clear instructions, while experienced crafters will find inspiration for personalized projects.

Along with 50 original design templates, the book includes:

Guidance on working with pewter
A directory of materials and tools
Beginner and refresher exercises
Materials lists
Step-by-step instructions
How to create patina
Crafter's notes

The projects vary from striking jewelry and distinctive gifts to decor items, such as:

Silver cross bracelet
Bead necklace
Art deco bowl
