Jewelry: Fundamentals of Metalsmithing
In logical progression, Jewelry: Fundamentals of Metalsmithing examines the basic techniques of this ancient and accessible craft: fabricating, surface treatments, joining, finishing, stone setting, chain making, mechanisms, and casting. It is illustrated throughout with clear demonstration photos, Mr. McCreight's beautifully rendered drawings, and examples of exceptional contemporary jewelry.
This relaxed yet thorough introduction to the skills of metalworking is a fully revised, expanded and updated edition of Tim McCreight's popular guide for novice metalworkers. As both a fresh presentation of fundamental techniques and a portfolio of the finest contemporary design, Jewelry: Fundamentals of Metalsmithing is an instant classic in its own right.
