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.

User Review  - mblc -

This book is the most easily understood yet detailed with how to make high quality metal clay objects. It was priced about 40% lower than the leading bead magazine adds and it is more than worth the price for the indepth information. I was so happy to find it on overstock. Thank you! Read full review
