Nothing is more gratifying than receiving a compliment on a piece of handmade jewelry. However many regard making jewelry as being too difficult and tedious. Basic Jewelry Making Techniques shows how, after mastering only a few basic techniques, crafting even the most complicated jewelry pieces becomes an easy task.

Readers will learn to use techniques such as soldering, texturing, and enameling on wood, acrylic, glass, precious stones, and more. Detailed instructions and illustrations accompany each project, and designs are flexible enough to be modified. Professional jeweler, Jinks McGrath explains how to optimize minimal workspace with suggestions for home workshop designs. She also reviews the necessary tools to begin and the larger equipment to buy as skills develop.

* Teaches how to optimize space for effective workshop design at home * Includes instant reference tables for conversion formulae and melting point temperatures * Features projects using silver, wood, acrylic, and more that utilize all modern jewelry-making techniques
