"The complete book on cloisonn#65533; enameling . . . encyclopedic in scope." -- Jewelers' Circular-Keystone "A good addition to all general craft collections." -- Library Journal One of the most beautiful forms of enameling and jewelry making, cloisonn#65533; enameling is currently enjoying a renaissance among jewelers, enamelists, designers, and craftspeople. For anyone wishing to explore the age-old art, the present volume is considered the best book on the subject. Written by two veteran jewelry designers and widely acclaimed when first published, it offers a comprehensive step-by-step guide to the tools, materials, and processes required to create shimmering, gem-like cloisonn#65533; enamels and settings. The book is divided into two parts. The first conveys everything from designing the wirework for the "cells" or cloisons, making the enameling cup to hold the wires and enamels, and adding and firing the colors, to creating special effects with wire, foil, and decals. Part II provides clear directions for creating handsome settings for pendants, rings, pins, buckles, boxes, and a variety of other decorative items. Over 150 detailed illustrations and photographs illuminate each step of the procedures as well as the glorious finished products. This thorough, informative book will be appreciated by intermediate-level and advanced enamelers alike. It deserves a place on the bookshelf of anyone interested in the rewarding and highly satisfying art of creating vibrant multi-hued cloisonn#65533; enamels and jewelry.
