Whilst many jewellers and designers are working with plastics these days, there is very little information available about the methods and techniques required to manipulate them for jewellery-making purposes. This book includes instructions and advice on marking out and cutting, joining, laser and water-jet cutting, welding, curling, heating and colouring. Various methods for finishing plastic professionally are also explored, and the book features an inspirational gallery of works by contemporary artists, showcasing a fantastic range of results. With clear, step-by-step instructions, and full-colour images throughout, Precious Jewellery from Plastics requires no previous knowledge and covers everything you need to know about working with plastics, including polypropylene, acrylic, nylon, polystyrene and PVC. Precious Jewellery from Plastics is a comprehensive guide to working with plastic for those who are keen to experiment with the medium for the first time, or even those with more experience who would like to expand their repertoire of skills.
