A Handbook of Cold Joins for Jeweler's and Mixed-Media Artists

Making Connections includes nine chapters using appropriate cold joins used for connecting metal and mixed media. Beyond the traditional rivet, this book features fiber-related attachments such as stitching, weaving and crochet, as well as chapters on trapeze attachments for objects that require swing and movement. Prominent artist contributors include Robert Ebendorf, Eric Silva, Boris Bally and Arlene Fisch, to name a few.

Susan Lenart Kazmer is an explorer, inventor and maverick who has pioneered the use of found objects in jewelry making. After two decades of working with appropriated materials, Susan has developed dozens of ingenious cold connections using staples, rivets, fibers, resins and other material. Here, Susan shares the insights, creative philosophy and techniques that inspired and helped create her stackable jewelry and kinetic, three-dimensional marionettes. Embellished with stunning photos and dozens of original joining techniques, this book solves many of the problems encountered when connecting delicate mixed media to metals. Susan's ground-breaking techniques and fresh approach to cold connections will uncover a world of new options that will inspire mixed-media artists and jewelers.
