Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist, July 2014

Save time and effort by using metal that is already cut or patterned for you: see what's new in metal stock including precut blanks, textured sheet and strip, patterned wire - even engraved disks.  

Put your jewelry selling efforts where they're going to pay off more and more by making your online site easy to use on the fastest growing market segment of mobile. Find fast and simple ways to make your site tablet- and smartphone-friendly now. Don't miss out on any more sales: do it right away!  

Learn basic bezel setting as you make a jasper pendant with decorative gallery wire, and learn to cut a basic jasper cabochon yourself. Create a 3D effect in silver and copper metal clays when you create a shadowbox pendant.  

Go beyond basic and challenge yourself as you create a soaring phoenix in silver and brass and set with carved and faceted gems: practice your sawing, stamping, soldering and setting, plus see how to carve a piece of tigereye and cast a setting for any carved stone.  

Plus find edgy amber jewelry designs, amazing golden artifacts from the ancient Andeans, soldering tips, answers to your technical questions, and more!
