The key to author Joey Silvera's approach is a handheld butane torch that is safe to use in any home or apartment. The author takes the mystery out of soldering, so that amateur jewelry makers feel empowered and confident - even those who have never held a butane torch. Features 12 charming finished projects with clear instructions. Start small, making earrings and simple shapes, and progress to challenging constructions including a box clasp and rings.
In part 1 of the book, you will learn about the tools and materials you will need for a home set-up as well as fundamental soldering techniques. By the time you have reached part 2, you will be ready to start the projects that Joe explains step-by-step. The thorough basic techniques section will help you understand the science and craft behind soldering, as well as other basic metalsmithing techniques. Each project advances your skills, from your first earrings and soldered jump rings, to soldering on posts, pin stems, making box clasps, beads, and bezel settings on rings. Includes a glossary of terms. 111 pages, soft cover.
