Overview

Metal clay starts as clay and turns into metal. Does it get any more magical? Now it does—with Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry. Author Sherri Haab takes this compelling material, today's hottest craft item, to the next level, brilliantly combining it with other media ranging from the timeless to the unexpected. Ribbons, gold leaf, pottery shards, transparent resin, polymer clay, leather, and more are used to create stunning jewelry. Beautiful photography showcases these innovative pieces, and full step-by-step instructions make it easy to re-create them. New formulations of metal clay and newly developed firing techniques are presented clearly so that crafters can achieve professional results. Sophisticated enough for artists yet simple enough for beginners, Metal Clay and Mixed Media Jewelry is the only book that blends metal clay with such a variety of mixed media to make magic.

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT - Shirley Reis
Clay that turns into silver or gold; how cool is that? The book presents an overview of basic materials and techniques, including new formulations of metal clay and firing techniques. The step-by-step directions and photographs are absolutely stunning! The written directions are clear and concise. The projects that utilize wire crochet are especially well written and illustrated. The book is divided into four sections: Metal Clay Essentials, Creative Connections, Metal Clay & Support or Bezel and Color, Image and Surface Design. It is also interesting to see such a wide variety of other objects incorporated with the metal clay, such as ribbons, pottery shards, transparent resin, leather, and gold leaf, to create gorgeous pieces of art. A list of suppliers is included at the end of the book. Sherri Haab is the author of The Art of Metal Clay and an award-winning author, illustrator and product designer of how-to books for children. This book will surely inspire both experienced artists and beginners alike.
