In this fast-paced presentation, Tim McCreight introduces various joining techniques that do not require soldering. Through clear examples, demonstrations and graphic presentations, McCreight features several categories of cold connections including staples, tabs, rivets and rubber bands. Each technique is augmented with drawings, examples and commentary on the processes involved.
In addition to its valuable technical instruction, this DVD covers the historic use of cold connections in jewelry, and of collage as an art process. Examples and quotations from artists challenge assumptions about commonly used materials.
