"A good resource for those who want to get back to the basics of metalworking and metal clay ... Expect a lot of project ideas and a solid grounding in the basics." - Art Jewelry Magazine, January 2012 issue "The projects are easy to follow, and Hettmansperger's instructions can easily be adapted to any artist's own style. The combinations with [metal clay, ] metal, and fiber techniques can inspire new ideas for all." - Metal Clay Artist Magazine "This book definitely opens a door of possibilities for anyone who has worked with metal sheet, metal clay, wire, or mesh. By showing how these can be combined, the book is sure to get your design wheels turning in your head!" - Jewelry Making "The first half of Mary Hettmansperger's 128-page 'workshop in a book' covers materials, setting up studio space, equipment and tools, and a range of techniques: piercing, cutting, forging, and soldering sheet metal; shaping, texturing, and firing all types of metal clay; using cold connections; basic wirework; and a variety of patinas. Mary's personable approach makes the techniques and concepts manageable. The book includes 20 projects designed by Mary, many of which combine sheet metal, metal clay, and wire." - Bead&Button ""Mixed Metal Jewelry Workshop" combines metal clay with traditional metal forms including sheet metal, wire, and other embellishments in 20 jewelry projects. Also included are chapters on materials, tools, techniques and a proper workspace. Each project has step-by-step instructions, illustrations and photos.
