Although ceramic beads have been around for as long as pots have, the idea of ceramic jewellery has been making a comeback in a much more glamorous and professional form than ever before. This book shows how ceramics can be combined with other materials such as silver, gold, feathers, leather, textiles or stone to create some unique and innovative pieces. The book looks at how to source or create your own fittings and findings, the problems of design and the practicalities of joining the various elements to create a successful piece. The book is well illustrated both with practical images and beautiful photos of finished work from a range of international artists. Ceramics Handbooks are a series of highly illustrated, practical books for working potters, students and teachers. They are clear, accessible and cover a wide range of topics.
'Hot off the press, this book gives all the essential information to make ceramic jewellery plus an attractive colourful gallery of work by international artists.' Craftsman Magazine (July 2010) 'A very useful book for the beginner and for those who wish to be inspired to produce more innovative pieces.' Kent Potters Association newsletter (Aug/Sept 2010)
