Necklaces, Bracelets, and Earrings

The editors of Stringing and Beadwork magazines show off their design skills with 21 unique projects that incorporate all kinds of metals like silver, gold, copper, brass, PMC, and more. Projects are constructed using basic stringing and wireworking techniques that are accessible to beginners, while the boutique-style designs will captivate the more experienced beader.

Mixed Metals begins with a detailed how-to technique section covering a variety of jewelry basics.

  • Techniques for distressing metal using liver of sulfur and other patinas along with hammering.
  • Background information is given on each type of metal, from common properties to shopping tips to care and cleaning.
  • 21 projects with detailed instructions show creative ways to use silver, gold, and base metals in jewelry designs - as well as ideas for mixing metals and using faux metals.

Most metal jewelry books focus on making the metal components either with PMC, wireworking, or metalsmithing. Mixed Metals is so much easier, focusing on making jewelry with pre-made metal beads, charms, chain, and components combined with accent beads using simple stringing and wireworking techniques. No metalworking required!

Misleading title
Yes,the instructions were very brief,but if I titled a book 'Mixed' metal I would make the majority of the projects WITH mixed metals. This book has about 20% of them with mixed metals. Very disappointed. Review by Kirsten M (Posted on 4/24/2015)
Good
In general the book is one that a beginner can use and make projects that are valued and enjoyed. The author could have been a little more extensive on technique, especially with the more intricate designs. Review by Samuel (Posted on 2/28/2015)
it's 'how to assemble 'charms' jewelry'
This book just shows some ready to use materials (god knows where you are supposed to find them) and the way to assemble them into jelewry pieces. Each instruction is 80% 'list of what you need' and 20% of how to fix them together in short words. You can guess this kind of explanations yourself just from looking at the picture of finished piece.
Was pretty disappointed.

Not for beginners
This book has some really interesting pieces. However, the directions aren't clear for any of the pieces. Great to look at but not helpful in making any of the pieces. Review by Joan (Posted on 9/15/2014)
