Sandy Griffiths has worked with pewter for many years, and here she shows the reader how to make twenty gorgeous items of jewellery using the simple yet stunning technique of low-relief embossing.

Pewter is a soft metal that has been used decoratively for hundreds of years and has enormous versatility and potential for contemporary crafters and jewellery makers. It's relatively cheap to buy; is soft, malleable and easy to use; and requires very little in the way of equipment or skill.
This book contains 20 simple, easy-to-make jewellery pieces, including brooches, necklaces and bracelets, all based on the simplest technique for embossing sheet pewter - low-relief embossing. The pewter is combined with semi-precious stones and beads; glued to other materials such as wood, plastic and little scraps of fabric; and coloured with glass paints, giving the finished pieces a bright, colourful, contemporary feel. Each project is accompanied by a beautiful, full-colour photograph of the finished piece; clear, step-by-step instructions; lists of the materials and equipment needed; and templates (where required). Two versions of each project are included, each made by following the same step-by-step instructions but by varying the embellishments, materials or colours used.

Small, easy projects suitable for beginners as well as more experienced crafters and jewellery makers
Includes a range of beautiful designs that will provide ideas and inspiration for more advanced pieces
An ideal introduction to metal jewellery work
