Mr. Untracht, an internationally renowned author and jeweler, compiled an amazingly comprehensive reference for all jewelers. Not only did he cover the fundamental tools and processes for jewelers working in metals and precious stones, but he also provides a short history of ancient to modern jewelry concepts. The actual processes, which are often ancient in themselves, are presented by modern masters in the field with quality accompanying photos. The 'concepts' are also thoughtfully presented. With references to historical examples and a clear insight into the modern jewelry movements, Mr. Untracht presents all these ideas behind metal jewelry in a mandala fashion with the jewelry maker as the center. Presented in this fashion, it not only allows for a clear understanding of the jewelry industry, but it also references the temporal aspect of jewelry history itself. It is this aspect that sets the author and the work apart from many technical books on jewelry making. It does not propose to be the cornerstone manual for the industry as a whole, but becomes it by allowing all aspects of the industry to be regarded with equality.
