"Beginning Jewelry is very direct and simple: it teaches you, the beginner, all that is necessary in order to create a piece of contemporary jewelry. The book deals first with basic materials, tools, and work areas. It tells you what silver is and how it is weighed and gauged for purchase. The full range of basic tools and supplies is covered, with the author's advice on which tools are essential to get started and which are better acquired as one's experience and confidence with the craft grow. The second part of the book covers the basic techniques of fabrication and casting. With the help of crisp, detailed step-by-step photos and instruction, you are introduced to all the basic processes of jewelry making, from cutting, drilling, and filing on through beating, annealing, and soldering, to setting, finishing, and polishing." - back cover.
