Sue's latest book was published in October 2012. The book is an encyclopedia of metal clay techniques from the basics through to ring making, bangles and bracelets, lockets and hinges, combined metal clays and mokume gane, sculpting, linking, chain making... and much more. There are also many techniques for embellishing metal clay jewellery from transfer techniques and polymer clay through to traditional enamelling, adding gold embellishments and combining metal clay with gemstones, glass and ceramics. Soldering for metal clay is covered in detail as well as forging the metal after firing and other cutting edge techniques. A section on zero waste shows many ideas for recycling that precious clay!
