Hi Everyone!
A few weeks ago I was sent a beautiful book. Heat Color, Set & Fire  Surface Effects for Metal Jewelry by Mary Hettmansperger. Some of the techniques she uses are the simplest to create elegance. Each piece in the book will take you to a new level of thinking how to create surface effects on metal. The book is laid out with an experts eye as are the 21 projects Mary shares. Adding the color to metal is not a new invention, however, some of the tools Mary uses are. You will be delighted with this 127 page hard back book. It will inspire and allow your freedoms to fashion and construct jewelry.

  1. This is a great book for those who work in metal!

  2. I have one of Mary's books published some time ago and have also watched one of her Quilting Arts videos. She does the most interesting work, creating elegance as you say with fairly simple materials. Thanks for sharing and enjoy your weekend Nicole!

  3. You are so creative. You know how to do a lot of things related to beading and such and now metal. Sounds like a great book. You rock! Have a wonderful weekend.
