Introducing Jewelry Making - John CrawfordB. T. Batsford, 1974, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. DJ slightly ruffled at the edges. Price Clipped. Top edges of text block lightly spotted.
Illustrated with B&W photographs. This book shows that striking jewellery can be made with limited materials and tools at slight expense, and that the process is well suited to the craft activities of schools and colleges, just as it may be rewardingly pursued by creative amateurs. The author is concerned with basic materials and tools, and simple methods of working, and with the kind of jewellery which they can produce: a Celtic brooch, an etched ring, a wire bracelet, a soldered pendant, etc. As well as the traditional materials, this book shows that other materials such as seeds, wood, ivory, bone, shells and semi – precious stones-can also be used, particularly in classes for young people. The illustrations prove that jewellery produced by students and amateurs can be more personal, and very often more beautiful, than the costly commercial products.
