This is an overview of contemporary jewelry-making techniques for studio artists. Individual chapters cover various aspects of metalworking, color addition, and the use of findings, with project instructions and color photographs of finished works by multiple artists supplementing the technical information and practice exercises. This beautifully illustrated book should find a place in public library collections needing additional material on jewelry making. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
