Mix up your jewelry repertoire! Create fabulous designs featuring a variety of metal beads, charms, chains and findings including silver, gold, and base metals.
The editors of Stringing and Beadwork magazines show off their design skills with 30 unique projects, ranging from necklaces, bracelets, and earrings that incorporate various kinds of metals such as 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, such as using liver of sulfur, other patinas, and hammering, are included. Background information is given on each type of metal, from common properties to shopping tips to care and cleaning. Then 30 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!
