Making jewelry ia fun and satisfying, and one needn’t be a silversmith to create great pieces. Silver Clay Keepsakes shows crafters and DIYers how to replicate the look of fine silver through a method that’s far easier to master than traditional metalwork ? and that uses a material that’s both easier to obtain and easier on the wallet. The book’s 24 projects celebrate the spirit of life: a silver baby spoon, a silver-painted piggy bank, personalized cake-serving utensils, cufflinks and money clips, a fashionable take on the dog tag, a Celtic knot pendant, a birthstone bracelet, and other elegant, meaningful tokens for new parents, grandparents, teens, graduates, newlyweds, and even the family pet. Illustrated with 400 easy-to-follow color instructions, the book covers the basics of working with metal clay, along with info on necessary tools, firing and drying schedules, torch and stove-top firing, online resources, and much more.
