The Art & Craft of Making Jewelry: A Complete Guide to Essential Techniques

Author(s): Joanna Gollberg

Craft - Metalwork

Packed with hundreds of how-to photographs and time-tested tips, this spectacular guide is an essential addition to every jeweller's library. All the basics are comprehensively covered - sawing, piercing, soldering - along with advanced skills such as granulation, enamelling, stone setting and casting. Create the stunning Bubbles Brooch by hollow-forming silver, adding pearls and attaching pin findings. Or, make a handsome lapel pin by cuttlefish-casting 18-karat gold; then set a brilliant sapphire on the textured surface. Plus, every section is accompanied by a gallery of contemporary pieces!
