Anodised Aluminium is a fascinating and diverse material, which can be decorated to create a wide variety of stunning effects for contemporary jewellery. The book contains a host of colouring techniques including dip-dyeing, direct application, printmaking techniques and the clever use of resists. The trouble-shooting chapter will help to resolve any colouring problems, and there are sections on designing specifically for anodised aluminium, fabrication and assembly, workshop health and safety and a useful list of suppliers. The generous gallery provides a source of inspiration and represents the wealth and diversity of jewellery being made using anodised aluminium in the UK and around the globe.
