9781554076031: Pewter Craft

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.

About the Author:

Sandy Griffiths is an experienced crafter who has demonstrated and taught several crafts for many years. She has a studio in Cape Town, South Africa, where she teaches pewter work and fabric painting. She is the author of Pewter Plus, which has sold well worldwide.

From Booklist:

Theres cast pewter, used to create all sorts of utilitarian objects such as goblets and flatware. Then theres pewter relief modeling, taking sheets of this highly flexible soft metal and molding them into various items, the subject of South African artist-author (Easy Pewter Projects, 2007) Griffiths latest offering. Theres much to applaud about this craft, beginning with readily available (and inexpensive) materials and tools. Techniques, too, dont demand mastery of difficult processes; in fact, the author provides what she calls refresher exercisesin low and high relief, sculpturing, and polishingto ensure reader-crafters succeed. Her 50 projects feature eminently practical items to fashion or decorate, ranging from a bookmark and photo frames to bracelets and salad servers. (Note: pewter relief materials are lead-free.) Look for inspiration around the types of objects showcased rather than the actual design/style; patterns tend toward the naive/primitive. Yet innovation does exist in Griffiths items, most particularly in the woven teaspoon caddy resembling a fine Italian handbags texture. A great springboard for unlimited creativity. --Barbara Jacobs
