Craft dimensional jewelry with a range of accessible methods. Jewelry artist Lisa Colby shows you how to transform sheet metal into dynamic jewelry, starting with a lesson on layering and texturizing a disc-link chain. Find out how to incorporate Lisa's signature heat rivets to create an articulated design, then delve into dapping to form an eye-catching saucer embellishment. Next, learn how to make undulating, leaf-inspired components with fold-forming techniques, and assemble a striking necklace. Then, explore doming as you craft synclastic crescent earrings, complete with custom posts. And, discover how to solder hollow forms that are perfect for pendants and charms.
Start fold-forming with Lisa's approachable technique! You'll learn how to create a crisp crease in your sheet metal and add texture with a riveting hammer. Lisa shows you how to anneal work-hardened pieces until they're soft enough to open, revealing beautiful leaf shapes. You'll even double fold-forms, which can be transformed into earrings, brooches or anything else!
