Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“The way Mary Hettmansperger weaves and manipulates metal is mesmerizing. Her new book will teach you some of her tricks in creating metal accessories with stunning surface treatments. She goes over a variety of low-tech approaches like patinas, enameling, keum boo, copper etching, fusing, weaving, texturing, and more through 21 projects. This book is the perfect opportunity to learn firsthand from one of the leaders in metal work.” --Belle Armoire Jewelry
 
“From basic materials to an index of color photographs and explanations on tools and supplies, this book is a must-have when tackling the art of altering metal! Basic techniques, tips, and methods are explained for a variety of beautiful metal designs created by heat, chemical, and force techniques. We loved the Dot & Loops Necklace and the Etched Copper Necklace--both bold and striking!” --Crafts 'n' Things
