Description:

This amazingly comprehensive guide to the jeweler's art is a goldmine of information--big, beautiful, and with hundreds of color photos. It's simply the handsomest, most complete sourcebook available, with its enlightening discussion of basic metallurgy (alloying, smelting, annealing, and pickling), and professional-quality techniques for cutting, piercing, soldering, and making closures and rings. Learn the tricks of the trade for enhancing surfaces; etching, combining metals, creating textures, adding color; engraving; enameling; and gem setting. Seven magnificently presented projects include a silver repousse pendant, an articulated gold bracelet with clasp, a multiple loop-in-loop chain, and a square hollow-construction ring to die for.
