Practical Jewellery-Making Techniques: Problem Solving presents an overview of the core jewellery-making techniques but provides easier alternative solutions for achieving the same results as traditional methods.
Each chapter is packed with unique ideas on how the jewellery maker can make tasks simpler, quicker or less expensive, and produce beautiful pieces. There are instructions for adapting and making your own problem-solving tools and jigs from everyday items, and tips on identifying potential pitfalls in a project and avoiding costly mistakes.
Practical and in a step-by-step format, this book includes over 50 projects, all fully illustrated, and detailed explanations of tools and working techniques.
