Create fabulous custom metal-stamped necklaces, beads, charms, bracelets, cuffs, and earrings with Beaducation.com founder Lisa Niven Kelly.|Metal stamping is one of the hottest trends in metal jewellery. Using purchased metal stamps and sterling silver blanks, you can personalize your metal jewellery designs with words, textures, and creative designs. Lisa Niven Kelly, creator of the online Beaducation workshops and website, specializes in the technique and has been teaching stamping for more than six years to enthusiastic students. Although stamping is a simple technique, the right tools and skills will help you create professional and exciting results.

Stamped Metal jewellery teaches multiple metal stamping and texturing techniques, and the projects incorporate wirework and metalsmithing to create fabulous necklaces, beads, charms, bracelets, cuffs, and earrings. The book opens with an extensive section on stamping, wirework, and metalsmithing tools and techniques. With these skills, you can begin the inspiring jewellery designs with confidence. Nineteen projects cover a variety of techniques and designs such as creating charms, incorporating stamped links into beaded projects, making stamped links from flat wire and wire-wrapping them together, stamping on blanks and layering them, riveting, texturing metal, oxidizing, and more. In addition to Lisa?s projects, the book features contributions by nationally known guest artists Tracy Stanley, Kriss Silva, Lisa Claxton, Kate Richbourg, Janice Berkebile, and Connie Fox.

-A few jewelry findings, some flat metal pieces, a hammer, and a collection of metal alphabet stamps are the basic requirements for these projects...Kelly, founder of Beaducation.com, demonstrates her teaching skills on the enclosed DVD. Teenagers, in particular, will find this a good introduction to metal crafting.- - Library Journal-I have been trying to learn how to stamp metal for a while now and had not been getting the results I wanted...After reading Lisa's book, not only am I inspired to create more, but I learned some really (really!) helpful tips that have helped me get the results I wanted. The book is perfect for beginners and gives a very good introduction to products and techniques.- - Craft Critique-Stamped metal jewelry is all the rage right now, and it's not as complicated as you might think - this book gives you a great primer.- - Canadian Living-Stamped Metal Jewelry is a great book. You'll learn everything you want to know about stamping. No doubt you'll also learn some useful metalsmithing techniques.- - Ronna Sarvas Weltman, author, Ancient Modern: Polymer Clay and Wire Jewelry
