Broom Casting for Creative Jewelry and Metal Work Description

Expand Your Jewelry Skills With Brad's "How To Do It" Books

Some jewelry making skills require considerable time and practice to master, but others are quite the opposite. They can be learned quickly, produce beautiful results, and are just plain fun to do. A prime example is broom casting. It can be mastered in a couple hours to produce intriguing geometries that spark the imagination and challenge your creative mind, just begging to be designed into finished jewelry.

Discover the rush of pouring molten silver into a common broom to get marvelous icicle-like shapes that make elegant pendants and earrings. Learn the proper use of the equipment, how to modify the irregular shapes for your designs, and ideas for fabricating jewelry from the pieces. Also included are suggestions for safety, tips on cleaning and polishing the deep textures, how to make some of your own tools, and examples of finished jewelry.
