Create your own chains, ear wires, clasps, and other findings from wire jump rings. Learn metal texturing and finishing techniques such as chasing, etching, and adding a patina. Find out how to make simple settings for pearls, beads, and stones. Then set your creativity free on projects like a Circle Brooch with Thorn Clasp, Layered Cuff Bracelet, and Polka Dot Tube Earrings.
