Precious metal wire is a versatile material that can be used to great advantage in jewellery design. This book focuses on using soldering techniques to confidentially construct wearable wire jewellery designs. It incorporates fundamental skills such as cutting, filing, annealing and soldering, and encourages the maker to master these basic techniques, so they can create individual articles of wire jewellery using their own inspiration and designs.

  • Comprehensive list of tools and equipment needed for working with wire
  • Illustrated step-by-step instruction for learning basic wire working processes, such as drawing, twisting, hammering and soldering wire
  • Practical advice for constructing more complicated pieces of jewellery containing structural forms
  • Further instruction for making chain, applying surface finishes and adding decorative elements to individual designs
