Great New Book on Making Jewelry With Copper

by Karen on November 1, 2009

Contemporary Copper JewelryCopper jewelry has become very popular over the last several years. The warm color and natural patina make copper pieces very contemporary and stylish. Copper also looks fabulous with a number of semi precious stones such as peridot and lapis lazuli. Another plus is that it is easy to work with and is less expensive than silver and gold.  I just came across this terrific new book out by Sharilyn Miller called
Contemporary Copper Jewelry: Step-by-Step Techniques and Projects. The book includes 17 projects with step by step instructions and is loaded with photographs that will help to inspire your own jewelry making ideas. I am really enjoying working with copper and this book has provided me with some great instruction on techniques as well as some some great ideas for new things to try.

I’ve been a fan of Sharilyn Miller since Bead on a Wire but agreed this new book is full of great ideas. I’m loving working with copper lately, something about how my hands smell like pennies when I’m done for the night! Just found you on Twitter and looking forward to exploring your site, thanks!
