Everyone can make stylish contemporary jewelry with ease! This beginner's guide holds the key: simply take widely available manufactured metal parts (hollow tubes, solid rods, precut perforated sheets) and arrange them in repeating patterns that develop into complex designs. The techniques--filing, drilling, piercing, cold connecting, soldering--are simple, and step-by-step photos capture every essential stage of the construction process. Today's most innovative designers, including Christine Dhein, Kristin Lora, and Amy Tavern, contribute to the 25 projects, and the variety of metals and colors showcased in their pieces yield stunning results. From Victoria Cho's very kinetic "Guitar String Stickpin" to Joanna Gollberg's magnificent cerulean and gold necklace, it's clear the modular possibilities are endless!
