Book Description

Popular jewelry designer and instructor Scott David Plumlee shows readers how to create 24 intricate-looking earrings, bracelets, and necklaces at home with a new quick and easy soldering technique.

An innovative new material is turning traditional soldering upside down. Scott David Plumlee, author of Handcrafting Chain and Bead Jewelry, teaches jewelry makers how to use a revolutionary new soldering paste and a small hand-held butane torch to create a range of seemingly complex but easily doable chain and bead designs at their kitchen table--no elaborate, expensive studio required. Scott's ingenious methods, clear instruction, and inspiring designs will give any aspiring jewelry maker the confidence to master this formerly intimidating technique.

What an awesome book! This project loaded, informative, and great instructional book is by the experienced and wonderful author, Scott David Plumlee.

Silver Soldering Simplified, A New Jewelry Technique You Can Do at Home, delivers, exactly as promised! Through his super ability of informed teaching techniques, all the information you could possibly require in order to learn what is a brand new jewelry technique is available to you right now! Not only that, you will be able to understand and access this information easily. If you already have a handheld torch, which most people who are interested in soldering have, you have most of the tool battle won! Granted, that is a slight overstatement, but as a dedicated jewelry designer who loves metalwork, this reviewer, for example, has or has had every single item needed at one time or another, except the newly developed ones which make this book so cool and compelling.

To work on the designs, the reader may sit anywhere in the house which has a table. Great! No studio required!

Shortly you will be creating (and riffing off of) the author's projects, making beauty at every turn, and having fun!

Indeed yes! This is one totally FUN jewelry design book! I assure you the driving force behind this is the brilliant mind and classic art of the author at work, but there is a definite playful aspect to these projects and ... it's catching!

You will soon understand what I mean, right after you get the book.

As the author is renowned for his chain maille, you may be wondering how much chain maille is offered.

There is plenty and it is lovely! I admire chain maille in every way, so I was delighted to see that this ancient form of ring weaving appears in this book.
