Overview

Create 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.

Build your skills on 25 eye-catching items--attractive shower curtain hangers, decorative fans pulls, tabletop mirrors--made from sterling silver, copper, brass, and aluminum sheets. With each wonderful household object, you'll gain a solid foundation of cold connection metalworking techniques to use in the future.
