How to Silversmith Jewelry
"Kentucky Agate Pendant" by John Leeds

Create an outstanding silver pendant in this free project. You can create this pendant from rough stone to finished jewelry, or you can start with a finished cabochon and do the metalwork yourself. John used very few silversmithing tools for this project: two hammers, a few pairs of pliers, a rubber wheel, and sandpaper. He also used a laser welder to tack everything in place, but everything can be soldered if working without a welder.

Silversmithing Techniques
"Bamboo Silver Ring" by Elizabeth Ann Tokoly

Next, try a project that is elegant and uses simple silversmithing techniques. This classic, elegant ring uses simple techniques—forming, soldering, filing—but demands a degree of proficiency and attention that can challenge the beginner or advanced beginner. After the ring is formed and soldered, the bamboo texture is slowly revealed through scoring and filing. The design echoes the vintage styles of several well-known jewelry houses. With one ring made, you can create more in other metals, make several to hone your skills, or have the original cast in multiples: this design works well for stack rings. Once mastered, the bamboo effect may also be used for bracelets, earrings, or other silver jewelry designs.

How to Make Silver Jewelry
"Pottery Shard Brooch" by Julie Jerman-Melka

Julie enjoys the challenge of working with found objects and incorporating them into a wearable piece of silver jewelry. If you’re like her, you probably have fond memories of enjoying a special dinner with family or friends, using the “good” china, or maybe enjoying a cup of afternoon tea from vintage tea cups. Inevitably, a piece of china or one of the prized teacups accidentally breaks, and it’s painful to just throw the shards into the trash. In this simple project, Julie shows you how to recycle the broken shards and make a simple brooch, perhaps reminding you of one of those special times with friends and family. Instead of using a commercial finding for this piece, she decided to make her own pin mechanism. It’s easy to execute and gives the piece a simple, handcrafted elegance with an extra personal touch.
