Craft one-of-a-kind metal projects for the home with these quickly learned “cold-connection” techniques that take the intimidation out of an appealing art form. Every step of the process is beautifully and pictorially covered, from piercing and sawing to riveting and bending, along with essential surface treatments, including filing, chasing, polishing, and adding patinas. Build your skills on 25 eye-catching items made from sterling silver, copper, brass, and aluminum sheets. Every bathroom could use attractive metal shower curtain hangers enhanced with colorful rivets, or a decorative fan pull. A tabletop mirror combines the sheen of metal with the stylish accent of an acrylic sheet. As you create each wonderful household object, you’ll gain a solid foundation of cold connection metalworking techniques to use in the future.
