More About This Title Designing and Making Rings and Bangles
Rings and bangles are timeless jewelry pieces; from simple elegance to bold creations, they make stunning statements. This beautiful book explains traditional techniques with step-by-step guides, and gives inspiration through stunning examples from leading jewelers. Written by two award-winning designer makers, it encourages jewelers of all levels of experience to express themselves and make unique pieces of jewelry to be worn and treasured. This new book covers the design process, from initial observation to developing, selecting materials, and finalizing an idea. Detailed instruction is given on more elaborate ways of making and decorating work, including casting, texturing, etching, granulation, inlay, and keum-boo. There is also a guide to using gemstones with a range of settings. Written both for beginners wanting to make their first ring or bangle and for the more experienced looking for inspiration.
