Overview

Internationally renowned jewelry designer, teacher, and author Mary Hettmansperger demonstrates easy, effective ways to embellish common metal jewelry in Heat, Color, Set & Fire, a how-to book on the leading edge of beautiful contemporary jewelry design.
 
Mary Hetts uses paints, pencils, and dips to achieve dramatic color; applies foils, resins, mica, and other materials to alter the jewelry surface; and works with exciting 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 individualized and breathtaking. The book includes 21 projects for inspiration, with excellent how-to instructions and photography.
 
This classic how-to jewelry book stands on its own as an inspirational volume for jewelers and artists, and it also is a wonderful complement to Mary's best-selling Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet.

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
