Ceramic jewelry is an ever-growing area of the ceramic world. Although ceramic beads have been around for as long as pots have, the idea of ceramic jewelry has been making a comeback in a much more glamorous and professional form than ever before. This book shows how clay can be combined with other materials such as silver, gold, leather, textiles, or stones 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 an international range of artists.
