Editorial Reviews

From The Critics

“Cold-join jewelry, which uses both household and jewelry-making tools rather than heat or solder for metalworking, allows the use of components that could be melted or distorted by high heat. Jewelry designer Dougherty, along with a number of contributors, explores the possibilities of cold-join jewelry in this collection of projects, which range from simple, modern pieces to edgy, industrial compositions. Many of the contributors have backgrounds in fine art or sculpture, which should give readers an idea of the complexity of the projects. They aren’t for beginners, but for jewelry makers experienced in working with both metal and jewelry tools." - Library Journal

"...a fabulous new book..." - CraftGossip.com Jewelry Making Guide

"Opens a world of jewelry making to those interested in working with metals but not that eager to pick up a torch." - About.com Guide to Jewelry Making

"The projects not only teach cold joining skills, they are trendy, wearable and easily adapted to creative interpretation so take the plunge and add cold joining to your next piece." - monstersandcritics.com
