You’ll love this if:
  • You want to explore the latest looks from top artists in 3D enamel.
  • You want to discover ways to set a variety of materials — from stones to glass cabs to fossil shells.
  • You want to expand your jewelry design expertise with the latest tools for creating your own designs and making your own templates for saw piercing.

Are you a fan of spectacular and interesting cuffs and bangles? The May/June 2018 digital issue of Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist has something for you then. Check out Roger Halas’s “Prehistoric Winner” bracelet project — a project in brass and bronze with a dinosaur theme. And if you want to learn to modify a bangle that no longer fits over your hand, see how Grant Robinson approached the solution to that problem with his “It’s All on the Wrist” lapis bangle. Another fabulous bracelet project in this issue is Noël Yovovich’s “Hidden Catch.” Noël shows you how to use flexible and pliable sterling silver metal clay to create a leaf-themed cuff with a hidden clasp. And she uses that design to set lovely hessonite garnet — the Smokin’ Stone for this issue.

For more setting advice and projects, explore Lexi Erickson’s “Guinevere’s Lament” pendant with its floral glass cabochon and Jim Landon’s “Ancient Beach Memento” pendant which not only tells you how to set a fossil shell, but it shows you how to cut it as well. You can also try setting a stone to create a focal toggle in Kieu Pham Gray’s “Supporting Star” project. If creating your own unique jewelry designs is your thing, take a look at the top design tools on the market right now (templates, stencils, scribes, and more) in “Cool Tools & Hip Tips: Great Create.” And learn to use graphic transfer sheets to make your own templates for saw piercing.
