A classic how-to jewelry book--and a natural complement and follow-up to Mary Hettmansperger's bestselling Wrap, Stitch, Fold & Rivet. Internationally renowned author Hettmansperger demonstrates easy, effective ways to embellish common metal jewelry. She uses paints, pencils, and dips to achieve dramatic color; applies foils, resins, mica, and other materials to alter the jewelry's surface; and works with unusual techniques, like the ancient Korean art of Keum Boo, to create a gold-gilt effect. Rings, bracelets, necklaces and pins--virtually any piece can become individualized and breathtaking.
