Book Description

Taking jewellery design beyond metal, Creating Jewellery in Wood teaches jewellers woodworking skills through a series of projects and step-by-step technique guides, enabling them to discover how knowledge of this craft can open up new perspectives for their art. The author’s beautiful projects are complemented by inspirational gallery spreads featuring the work of key designers working in wood. Jewellers have always used a range of materials and wood has been used for centuries; today there are fresh, modern ways to create stand-out pieces. Wood is becoming more popular as an alternative to pricier metalit is warm, lightweight, and has huge potential for shaping and finishing.

Creating Jewellery in Wood enables jewellers to expand their range of techniques, and combine wood with other media, from silver to silicon. Readers will learn skills that include joining, turning, steaming, polishing, staining, painting, bevelling, inlaying and working with different woods. This book will also appeal to woodworkers who want to extend their practice to jewellery, and those who want to learn woodworking skills, but who find furniture too intimidating and want an alternative to bowls and boxes.
