Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Delicate, contemporary, and attractive, metal clay origami jewelry isn't just a conversation piece; it can enhance even the most commonplace outfit. Sara Jayne Cole's Metal Clay Origami Jewelry guides you through this multi-step process with surprising ease and clarity. (Hand-selling tip: Flip the pages. This innovative artwork sells itself.)
From the Publisher
"This is, hands-down, one of my favorite jewelry books ... a staple (for) every jewelry artist's bookshelf." -- Belle Armoire Jewelry
 
"Striking, contemporary jewelry designs made from paper-type silver metal clay. Most of Cole's projects use traditional folds to create entirely new designs. The 25 projects in the book offer a nice variety of pieces. Metal Clay Origami Jewelry should inspire more designers to work with paper-type silver clay.' -- Metal Clay Artist Magazine
 
"Don't let the cover of this book fool you: metal clay origami may be one of the easiest techniques you'll do with metal clay. I got little shivers up my spine when I started to leaf through the book and saw all the stunning pieces you can make with the metal clay origami process. Sara Jayne Cole does an excellent job guiding you. Go pick up a copy of this book!" -- Bead Unique magazine
 
"The 25 projects include a range from earrings, bracelets, necklace, rings, and pins. All, of course, have a modern, and, in many cases, Asian flair to them such as the Butterfly Pin project and Samurai Pin project. Because of the folding methods used with the clay, many of the designs tend to have a geometric look and will appeal to the jewelry designer who has very contemporary tastes. If you enjoy contemporary lines, then the combination of folding techniques and metal clay techniques offered in this book will definitely appeal to you." -- About.com: Jewelry Making (5-star review)
 
"Have you been wondering what was the next new thing with metal clay? How about origami? Sara Jayne Cole introduces an amazing combination of art forms ... (with) 25 gorgeous projects that will leave you gasping in awe." -- Beading Arts
 
"A longtime enthusiast of origami, Sara Jayne Cole started working with metal clay sheet and traditional origami patterns. The results are spectaucular! The pieces Sara Jayne shares in her book are delicate and can vary dramatically with different surface textures and silver patinas. If you love working with metal clay or would like to begin exploring metal clay sheet, this book is a must have for your library." -- Craft Gossip
Library Journal
Origami seems an unlikely technique for metal jewelry, but the versatility of metal clay sheets makes it possible. Cole is expert in both silversmithing and origami. Her projects use classic origami folds for small metal clay jewelry elements that retain their shape when fired. The resulting metal pieces are attached to jewelry findings in the usual way to make necklaces and earrings. For professional and advanced hobbyist jewelers.
