Techniques and designs for custom jewelry components by Denise Peck (Author)


Book Description

Why spend hundreds of dollars stocking up on expensive manufactured clasps, jump rings, ear wires, bails, and more when you can make exactly what you need for a fraction of the cost? Making custom findings enables jewelry makers to affordably create just the right component to complement their own jewelry designs.
Handcrafted Wire Findings looks at a variety of wire materials to fit all budgets, from sterling silver, fine silver, German silver, copper, brass, and artistic wire, as well as the best material for each use. With fundamental skills for beginners that progress to more sophisticated designs, this book covers techniques such as basic wirework, texturizing, silver fusing, adding patina, and traditional finishes.
Included are over 30 projects for making custom wire findings, each accompanied by step-by-step photographs and directions to ensure success.
