Overview

In her latest jewelry book, Linda Peterson presents 35 stunning metalwork designs for necklaces, rings, bangles, earrings, and more. Discover how to create easy pieces from using common materials found in your home, and then move on to more advanced techniques with brass, copper, and silver. These designs are inspired by the steampunk movement, a style that combines technology and romance—in essence, punk with a Victoriana feel. Think vintage watches, capturing the theme of time travel, combined with brass, copper, leather scraps, and faded paper, for unusual jewelry that is elegant yet quirky. Each project has clear step-by-step photography to guide you, and a full techniques section explains all you need to know for working with metal, from hammering to metal texturing and finishing techniques, such as adding a patina to create an aged effect.
