Silver Jewellery Making is a practical beginners’ guide to making silver jewelry, with step-by-step projects guiding the reader through seven projects. The projects are designed to help the reader gain skills and techniques and eventually progress to making their own designs.

The seven tried-and-tested projects have been developed by Janet over forty years of teaching and have been honed to develop readers’ skills in a practical, doable order. The emphasis is on teaching good practice and acquiring the basic techniques and skills to give the reader a solid basis for developing their jewelry-making capabilities.

Tools will be introduced for each individual project, and their uses and correct handling explained. Troubleshooting tips explain how to overcome common problems that may arise. At the conclusion of each project, there will be examples of how the skills gained can be used to make other items.

The book is for those who wish to start jewelry making either on their own or as a supplement to beginners’ classes.

Features crucial tips, techniques and troubleshooting sections throughout

A seemingly intricate craft is made accessible by the authors, Machi de Waard and Janet Richardson, who are accustomed to both teaching and creating jewelry of their own.

Machi is a designer jeweller and jewellery tutor. Jewellery has been a full time pursuit since early 2007, with work being shown at galleries, fairs and exhibitions. Machi combines her studio practice with teaching, having taught jewellery making for over ten years at various locations in Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. Machi was Artist in Residence at South Hill Park Arts Centre in Bracknell for 2010 and 2011. Machi’s interests in modern art, particularly in sculpture and minimalism, influence her work. Machi lives in Reading, UK.

Janet Richardson trained at Sheffield and has been a jeweller and silversmith for over 40 years; it is what she has always done. She loves making and is constantly investigating new techniques and skills. Teaching has become as much a love as designing and she delights in the achievements of her students. Janet has exhibited in Britain and abroad through galleries, arts trails and craft fairs. She was resident jeweller at South Hill Park Art Centre 1994 - 2000 and her students have since become resident jewellers there themselves. Having started her business in London she now resides in Berkshire.
