Sneak Peek.....

I received an advanced copy of Mary Hettmansperger's new book....Mixed Metal Jewelry Workshop.

And if the cover makes you drool....wait until you see the inside. It's beautiful.

Mary gives all the details you need to choose your materials / tools and instructions on how to work with them. The book has 20 projects that use sheet metal, metal clay (silver, bronze, and copper) wire, mesh, screws and my favorite.....galvanized wire grid.

Some of the projects use sheet metal to capture found objects...like ancient coins, driftwood, and metal clay, while other projects use metal clay to capture sheet metal. There's weaving and stitching and extruding....Oh My.

This is definetely one for your library. Mary also has two other books...Fabulous Woven Jewelry and Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet. A great triology of jewelry techniques.

PS....you might be asking yourself how I got an advanced copy....a picture of one of my pendants is in the book. Thanks Mary!!!!
