Easy Projects Using Readymade PartsBook - 2010
The secret is out! Here's how skilled crafters make gallery-quality modular jewelry out of inexpensive mass-produced parts. All the essential techniques--sawing, filing, drilling, making cold connections, soldering, polishing--are illustrated in full-color photography and then utilized in 25 beautiful projects by contemporary designers, from Victoria Cho's "Guitar String Stickpin" to Joanna Gollberg's elegant cerulean and gold necklace. Finally, a spectacular color gallery of necklaces, pendants, earrings, bracelets, rings, and brooches demonstrates the vast range of creative possibilities in prefab jewelry design.
