"25 jewelry projects exploring patina and wire, metal, and glass"-- Provided by publisher.
"Explore a rustic approach to making beautiful jewelry with exciting surface effects. Rustic Wrappings is packed with over 24 wire and art bead jewelry projects and reveals the surprisingly artistic effects of applying items such as salt, vinegar, bleach, sawdust, potato chips, or baking soda to your copper, silver, brass and steel wire projects-high-end effects with low-tech techniques. Achieving these innovative effects using household products will not only inspire jewelry makers but mixed-media artists as well. Advance your technique skills when you learn how to use patinas to add rustic, weathered effects, create unique and natural-looking color combinations, and use metal wire to embroider designs on metal jewelry pieces. Beginners will benefit from detailed technique instruction, while skilled designers will enjoy the introduction to more advanced techniques. With tons of information on customizing effects for unique metal finishes, Rustic Wrappings will teach you to re-imagine your wirework jewelry projects and create fresh designs that showcase your new skill sets.
