BEAD MEETS METAL Easy metalwork techniques to showcase gemstone beads and other treasures by KAY RASHKA

BEADS MEET METAL by Kay Rashka About the Author: Kay is a scientist in the Biotech industry by day and a jewelry artist and instructor by night. Kay loves helping people realize their potential and be creative every day. Kay has been creating jewelry for 25 years. She works primarily in sterling silver and semi precious gemstones. Her work has been featured on the cover of Art Jewelry Magazine in September 2011. To learn more about Kay and her designs go to kayrashka.com , kayrashka.blogspot.com and you can also find her on facebook: Kay Rashka Jewelry Page. Before you get to all the brilliant projects in this book Kay covers: Materials used, Work space safety, and Fabrication tools and techniques such as: sawing, filing, drilling, forming and forging, hands on texturing, finishing, forming spirals, making earring wires, antiquing , etching, tube riveting, making jump rings, torchwork, balling wire, annealing, and soldering. Then the fun and very creative projects begin. There are 16 projects for you to pick from. I was totally and completely blown away by the wealth of information and things Kay takes the time to teach us all before she even starts the projects. The step by step written instructions covers every single detail. To top that off the written instructions are accompanied by pictures of the different steps. I have been making Jewelry for 13 years now. But I have yet to solder or saw metal or etch metal. This book has inspired me to try all the things I have yet to do. This book has given me the confidence to go for it. Thank you Kay and Kalmbach for writing and publishing this book. I am so thrilled to have this book. I have learned so much from just reading it my brain was like a sponge absorbing all the information. I can't wait to start on the projects and expand my jewelry designs. You will see what I mean when you pick up your own copy of this book. You can get this book at your favorite book store or at www.KalmbachStore.com or call 1-800-533-6644
