Making Connections: a Handbook of Cold Joins for Jeweler's and Mixed Media Artists
BIO: As an artist and jewelry designer of 20 years, I have become known for mastering cold join attachments in my work. This book is not only beautiful in photography and illustrations, but contains a university level curriculum that everyone from the beginning student to the professional jeweler should find interesting. This book includes nine different chapters using appropriate cold joins used for connecting metal and mixed media.
Beyond the traditional rivet, this book includes chapters featuring fiber related attachments such as stitching, weaving and crochet, as well as chapters on trapeze attachments for objects that require swing and movement.
Prominent artist contributors include Robert Ebendorf, Eric Silva, Boris Bally and Arlene Fisch, to name only a few. It is a hardbound and full color book that you will not only find has amazing content but also beautiful to look at.
