Silver Jewellery Making

by Machi de Waard & Janet Richardson

Silver Jewellery Making is a practical beginners’ guide to making silver jewellery, with step-by-step projects guiding the reader through seven projects. These are designed to help the reader gain skills and techniques and eventually progress to making their own designs.

The tried-and-tested projects have been developed by Janet over forty years of teaching and have been honed to develop readers’ skills in a practical, doable order. The emphasis is on teaching good practice and acquiring the basic techniques and skills to give the reader a solid basis for developing their jewellery-making capabilities.

Tools will be introduced for each individual project, and their uses and correct handling explained. Troubleshooting tips explain how to overcome common problems that may arise. At the conclusion of each project, there will be examples of how the skills gained can be used to make other items.

The book is for those who wish to start jewellery making either on their own or as a supplement to beginners’ classes.
