This gorgeous guide to metal clay jewellery, written by jewellery designer Natalia Colman, features silver, copper and bronze clays.

It contains 17 jewellery projects including rings, pendants, earrings, bracelets and decorative clasps: it is thorough enough to lead a beginner through the process from start to finish, but innovative enough to inspire even experienced jewellery-makers.
