Soldering is one of the most commonly used processes in jewellery, but its potential is often overlooked. This practical book explains the basics of the method but goes on to suggest ways in which soldering can be used to explore ideas and produce unique pieces. Written both for beginners and for those wishing to extend their knowledge, Soldering for Jewellers will inspire a more creative use of this key process.

•Emphasis on the importance of preparation and planning designs
•Focus on silver soldering, which can be used for most non-ferrous metals such as silver
•Basic techniques and exercises introduce soldering the edge-to-edge joint, two ends of a ring and the rub over setting
•Further applications - such as sweat soldering, soldering small items, attaching fixings and findings, and stick feeding - and advanced techniques
•Projects demonstrate how soldering can be used and show the best way to construct a design

Rebecca Skeels is a respected jeweller and metalsmith. Her exciting designs combine materials and making processes in innovative ways. She teaches at the University for the Creative Arts, and sits on the board of directors for the Association for Contemporary Jewellery.
