Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist, March 2014

Find out what else some basic jewelry making tools can do besides the basics and what tools and equipment jewelry experts prefer to use for soldering.

Discover the traditional Korean technique of keum boo, in which you apply very small pieces of gold foil to silver or another metal to give the whole a rich look at an economical price - plus learn to roll your own gold foil! Then make ever so tactile keum boo earrings, and a touch of keum boo to a pendant that features the glimmering blue gemstone called kyanite and a deeply colored freshwater pearl - and learn all about kyanite and see what other contemporary designers are doing with today's pearls.

Create a dimensional wavy bangle bracelet using anticlastic raising techniques with basic jewelry making tools and apply a colorful patina inside the curl of the wave. Promote yourself in your local market by selling at trunk shows and loaning out pieces to high-profile figures who will wear your work to their work. Plus tips on buying and cutting Guatemalan jadeite, answers to your questions, a design challenge, new products, and the annual index to past projects, feature articles, and columns.
