Following up their best-selling book Handcrafted Wire Findings, Denise Peck and Jane Dickerson give you MORE of what you've been asking for. More techniques, more (and different) findings, and more inspiration are abundant in this book. Featuring 30 step-by-step tutorials for metal findings created with wire, sheet metal, or a mix of both, find inspiration for your next project! And best of all, the projects in this book require only basic jewelry making skills – all of which are shown in clear step-by-step photos.

Together with a star-studded group of contributors, Denise and Jane show you how to work with pre-cut metal blanks, thin-gauge metal sheet, and wire. No special tools are required to make these great findings, so all the metalwork can be done with studio basics. You'll learn how to hole-punch, dap, hammer, texture with stamps and tools, and patina your handcrafted metal components.

Simple construction techniques, like soldering with a micro torch and cold connections, are covered as well. Finished gallery pieces that incorporate some of the findings provide additional inspiration in this idea- and information-packed book.

Worthy successor to Wire Findings
Rating
After loving Denise and Jane's previous book on Handcrafted Wire Findings, I wasn't sure what new I would find in this book, but I was wrong. I found many ideas and clever designs that enhanced my knowledge and dissuade me from buying retail. I wouldn't have thought to make my own button shanks for instance, but after looking at the instructions and seeing how creative one could get, I'm going to give it a go!

This book is for beginners
Rating
Not what I expected, these projects are fine for what they are - beginner projects to get you started. I make my own findings - mostly clasps and bails. I was looking for some ideas beyond what I can find looking at other artists work. I was quite disappointed. Review by Caracal (Posted on 11/22/2016)
Very Good Ideas
This was a good reference purchase but since I also subscribe to many jewelry magazines, some of this I had seen before. Some of the techniques I will use in my style of jewelry (rustic) but not all. If stuck for inspiration, will definitely pull it out and see what might work. Review by Linda (Posted on 2/7/2016)
A winner
This is another helpful book with innovative ideas for wire & metal work from the dynamic duo of Peck & Dickerson. I doubt I would have thought of most of their designs, no matter how long I worked in either medium. Most of their ideas are so clever and easy to make that I've had no trouble following them. Not only that, but they have improved the look of my work. I can hardly wait to see what they come up with next. Review by Alice (Posted on 7/29/2015)
