Jewellery Using Textiles Techniques PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Jewellery Using Textiles Techniques free pdf A large-format, highly illustrated how-to-do-it book for beginners and practising jewellers looking for new ideas. There has been a recent increase in jewellers using these techniques in their work, and this book will cover all the possibilities for manipulating wire, gold, silver, etc. Using a step-by-step approach, this book will be an easy and accessible, but thorough, introduction to a wide range of textiles techniques for those more accustomed to working with metals than with fabrics and yarns. Examples of appropriate techniques for each material will be featured as making sequences, alongside showcased pieces from contemporary jewellers in different materials. Techniques covered will include crochet, weaving, knitting, interlinking, lace, knots, basketry techniques, etc. There will be at least ten projects included showing how to design and make your very own finished pieces (eg: ribbon necklace, brooches using old lace/fabric, woven metal with fabric necklace, knitted metal corsage, bobbin-knitted bangle, crocheted earrings etc) and every project will include a variety of finishing options.
