Jewellers Anastasia Young and Paul Wells have released a reference guide on curved scoring and folding for sheet metal. The techniques explored enable the creation of three-dimensional forms and have potential applications in jewellery and metalsmithing.
Features of the Book
The book uses a practical approach with clear photographs explaining each step of the process. It’s intended to help established jewellers, jewellery students, home crafters and advanced amateurs understand how to score and fold metal.
In addition to the techniques, the book includes a section with resources such as an analysis of score depth according to the gauge of the wire used, and information about where to source materials.
