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
