Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Any craft as gorgeous as jewelry deserves a how-to manual that's just as handsome, and here it is--big, beautiful, filled with hundreds of color photos and a mine of information. After a brief discussion of basic metallurgy--alloying, smelting, annealing, and pickling--the book moves to essential jewelry-making techniques: cutting and piercing, soldering and other joinings, making closures and rings. Next comes a good long look at enhancing the surface: etching with acid, combining different metals, creating textures, and adding color. For the creative reader, there's information about related jewelry techniques: engraving, Japanese lacquering, enameling, gem setting, and modeling. Finally, there are seven complete projects with step-by-step instructions, including an engraved pendant, a very contemporary brooch, a gloriously textured gold bracelet, and a huge square ring to die for.The lines are clean and the look is contemporary. Beginners will study it, seasoned jewelry makers will savor it, and jewelry lovers will browse through it for hours.
