Mardel Rein, Fusing Sterling and Metal Clay DVD "Fusing Sterling and Metal Clay" Mardel Rein
In this workshop Mardel Rein shows you how to fuse sterling silver and low fire metal clay using a torch or a kiln. Use this technique to fuse any sterling silver object to metal clay or fuse metal clay directly to sterling silver. Embed and fire sterling silver findings, embellish tubes, ring blanks, bracelet blanks or anything else made of sterling silver....even cast parts. Metal clay can be applied directly to the sterling silver as an embellishment, wet or dry, fired or unfired. Metal clay can also be "glued" onto sterling silver and fired in place.

Fusing will free you to use fine silver and sterling silver findings and settings such as pin backs, prong settings and ear posts or any other sterling silver element where the strength of an alloy is needed.

The project created in this DVD is designed to teach fusing, beginning soldering, beginning metalsmithing, beginning stone setting as well as forming, patination, and polishing. You will create a beautiful pair of sterling silver domed swinging earrings with a bezel or prong set gemstone ear post. For those not interested in learning to solder, the project can be made entirely by fusing the parts with metal clay.

The DVD includes complete step-by-step instructions, a materials and tools lists and a handy glossary.

Art of enameling Linda Darty
'The Art of Enameling' by Linda Darty
This is THE definite book on enamelling. Whilst I would recommend Pam East's book on enamelling to a complete beginner, as it gives you the confidence to get going (showing you how to do it simple, easy and fast), this is the next book you simply must have if you're interested in learning more and taking your enamelling further. It is packed full of inspiration, information, and instructions, from someone I think knows everything there is to know about enamelling! And, the sample pieces shown in the book are gorgeous, up to date, and modern; real eye candy.

Written with clarity and passion by a leader in the field, this book covers all the popular techniques, the fundamentals of setting up a studio, and 14 fabulous projects. The various methods covered include everything from traditional Cloisonne, Champleve, and Plique a Jour to experimental techniques such as firing enamel onto mesh forms. Even more creative possibilities await in the firing: use copper oxide to create cool color variations or try “raku” firing for unique effects. All the well-photographed projects, from a vibrantly toned flower ring to an elegant set of buttons with a delicate leaf pattern, encourage novices to use their skills and imagination. Softcover, 176 pages, measures 8-1/2"" x 10"".
