This is a classic how-to jewelry book and a natural complement and follow-up to Mary Hettmansperger's bestselling Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet . Internationally rewned author Hettmansperger demonstrates easy, effective ways to embellish common metal jewellery. She uses paints, pencils and dips to achieve dramatic colour; applies foils, resins, mica and other materials to alter the jewelry's surface and works with unusual techniques, like the ancient Korean art of Keum Boo, to create a gold-gilt effect. Rings, bracelets, necklaces and pins - virtually any piece can become individualised and breathtaking.
Mary Hettmansperger is the author of the bestselling Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet, as well as Mixed Metal Jewelry Workshop, and Fabulous Woven Jewelry, all published by Lark. Her work has been exhibited at SOFA through the Katie Gingrass Gallery and she does segments for the PBS programs Beads Baubles and Jewels and Quilting Art.
