An illustrated guide to 40 original pewter projects.

Pewter has strong hobbyist appeal in the crafts market. Easily punched, cut and modeled, pewter is perfect for relief work and embossing, and pewter work can be combined beautifully with other popular crafts, such as beading, woodworking and paper crafts. Modern pewter is also inexpensive, lead-free and readily available.

Pewter Craft is a collection of 40 original projects that are easy to follow, quick to complete and encourage improvisation. Beginners will find clear instructions, while experienced crafters will find inspiration for personalized projects.

Along with 50 original design templates, the book includes:

  • Guidance on working with pewter
  • A directory of materials and tools
  • Beginner and refresher exercises
  • Materials lists
  • Step-by-step instructions
  • How to create patina
  • Crafter's notes

The projects vary from striking jewelry and distinctive gifts to decor items, such as:

  • Picture frames
  • Earrings
  • A wedding album
  • Silver cross bracelet
  • Bead necklace
  • Art deco bowl
  • Sushi plate
  • Vintage bedside table
  • A personalized journal

This is a creative crafting book in a specialty subject area for which there are few other books available.

Review:

There's no smelting involved... The book gives step-by-step instructions, pictures of each project, and even templates of each decorative motif.--Paula Constantine"Projo.com (Providence Journal)" (11/10/2010)

I have absolutely no artistic talent whatsoever. Zero. Which is why I love living in a city and a state with so many talented, creative people who might be inspired by a book like Sandy Griffiths' Pewter Craft. Now don't let your imagination run away with you. There's no smelting involved. This is boxes, jewelry, household, kitchen and decorative items, even furniture, made from or accented with sheet pewter. Pewter is a soft, lustrous, silvery metal that the author says can easily be worked at home with some simple tools and even colored with glass paint. The book gives step-by-step instructions, pictures of each project, and even templates of each decorative motif so you can trace them to get a start on creating your own personal designs.--Paula Constantine"Projo.com (Providence Journal)" (11/10/2010)
