Vintage Impressions JewelryBook - 2012
Using vintage-style components that are widely available in craft stores, crafters can make the more than 25 projects in this book look like heirlooms. Chapters are divided by types of jewelry, including bracelets, earrings, pendant necklaces, jewelry sets, and accessories such as fabric bags, giving crafters a wide variety of options from which to choose. Some of the projects include the Mirror Glass 3-Strand Bracelet, the Layered Filigree Bar Pin, the Copper Flower & Pearl Cluster Earrings, and the Cloisonné Tassel Pendant. There is a technique guide with step-by-step photos that helps beginners learn the basics, such as forming wrapped loops, crimping beads, and creating head pins from wires. More advanced jewelry makers can learn to shape metal filigree around beads, use alcohol ink to color metal, and apply resin over a photo set inside a bezel--turning their designs into one-of-a-kind pieces.
