You’ll love this if:

  • You want to learn to use a rolling mill to add texture to your jewelry designs.
  • You already have a rolling mill and want to learn new textures and techniques.
  • You don’t have a rolling mill but want to explore other ways to add texture.
  • You want to see how top jewelry artists add texture to their creations.

It really is astonishing. You can take an object as light and delicate as a feather and create a perfect impression of it in metal simply by passing them together through a rolling mill. It works because the rolling mill provides a lot of consistent pressure, even though you don’t have to work very hard to deliver it. Your impression doesn’t have to be a recognizable object, either. You can impart all kinds of textures to your silver, copper, gold and other metal surfaces via roll mill power and mix them up however you like.

While you probably think “texture” first when you hear “rolling mill,” this magical piece of equipment has other uses, too. In these highlighted projects from Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist, you’ll learn how artists also use a mill to prepare solder and water-cast pieces of metal for use. You’ll also discover how one artist rolls a strip of heavy gauge silver wire into a sleek, heavy gauge copper wire cuff. Another artist uses the mill to modify patterns in multilayered, multicolored sheet for mokumé gané, a traditional Japanese metals technique. Yet another artist brings out the rich surfaces of fine silver and gold by texturing them for a linked bracelet in an example of the traditional layered Korean technique of keum boo.

If you have a rolling mill or access to one, you’ll love the chance to put your mill to work on these 10 innovative jewelry designs, and in adding more creative touches of your own. Because metalsmiths have focused on surface treatments for millennia — most of that time without rolling mills — if you don’t own one (yet), take heart. You can enhance your metal surfaces in countless ways with basic hand tools, too — you just have the pleasure of doing it for a longer time!
