Abstract:

This volume presents an introduction to metalsmithing. The author provides instruction on how to work with gold, platinum, copper, brass, steel, plaster and other materials. He provides an overview of common metal working techniques such as making a chain, annealing, fusing, bezel-setting stones, and making hinges.

Craftspeople and teachers throughout North America have adopted this book as an indispensable resource. Now revised and expanded, this classic handbook gives fuller coverage to familiar techniques and adds many new procedures to its already encyclopedic breadth. The straightforward text and instructive, clear drawings bring even complex techniques within everyone's reach. Extensive charts and tables, supplemented and updated in this edition, offer valuable information and resources. The wire binding makes this guide thoroughly practical for both studio and classroom use.
