Published by Interweave
Master teacher and jewelry artist Kate McKinnon begins Sculptural Metal Clay Jewelry with an overview of metal clay basics: terms, techniques, and tools. Next, she offers detailed instructions for creating a variety of metal clay and fine silver wire elements: components, settings, findings, attachments, 3-D forms, and textured effects that are the foundation of her signature jewelry designs.

The technique section is followed by 10 unique projects that combine foundation techniques with one-of-a kind design
elements. Projects include:
+ three-dimensional rings
+ organic chain designs
+ metal clay and lampworked bead pendants

Her designs have multiple components made from metal clay and fine silver wire, including not only clasps, chain, and settings, but also moveable and removable pieces, unusual textures and patinas, unique construction and engineering, and creative ways to incorporate beads.

All of the techniques are shown with crystal-clear step-by-step photography. For added instructional assistance, the author and her techniques in action appear on the enclosed DVD bound in the back of the book. This book and DVD combination offers jewelry artists both the techniques and design inspiration needed to create gallery-level jewelry that is truly art to wear.
