Metal clay is fine silver particles held together with a binder. Crafters work the compound like regular clay--and then, when their creations are fired, the binder burns away, leaving a glowing silver piece behind. Magical! Metal Clay for Beaders combines this new medium with ever-popular beading. It's win-win for beaders (who add an exciting new element to their creations) and for metal-clay artists (who discover how crystals, pearls, wire, and glass can enhance their work). Basics plus fourteen exciting projects make this book a must-have for anyone who loves beads or metal clay.Miech, Irina is the author of 'Metal Clay for Beaders ' with ISBN 9780871162335 and ISBN 0871162334.
