Synopsis

Anyone who makes jewellery, with whatever level of experience, will tell you that when you work on a piece sometimes things will not go to plan. Metals may not behave exactly as you expected them to. Or a joint that you thought was perfect suddenly becomes detached. Or an unexpected slip of the tool in your hands will make you think you've just ruined your last three hours of work.

Of course, it's only by making and resolving mistakes that you really learn the craft. But wouldn't it be wonderful if there was a manual that was able to identify where you'd gone wrong and suggest some foolproof ways to fix it? This book is that manual!

Author Frieda Munro draws on her experience both making jewellery and teaching the craft, and describes every conceivable problem that a jeweller might face at all stages of making a piece, suggesting ways to resolve what's gone wrong, or to use it creatively: turning a fault into a design feature. Images and diagrams throughout help a jeweller easily identify what may be going on with their own work, and what to do next.
