Metal fabrication jewelry tutorials



Those of you who know me well know that I usually only reach for metal when I need it for a bead embroidery project!  Even though I regularly use a torch for making lampwork beads, I rarely use one for soldering or hot connections, and I left lost wax casting behind years ago.

Still, some basic metal fabrication skills are great to have in order to be able to personalize your jewelry pieces.  It's fun once in a while to break out of your mold. Here are some simple projects that might get you started!Most of the projects listed here are good for beginners and can be accomplished with a minimal number of tools:

A stamped metal cabochon

Metal hinge bracelet

"Hope" bracelet

Copper necklace with patina

Copper bead necklace

Casting jewelry

Darth pendant

Rock On! pendant
