KIRKUS REVIEW

A British import by a master craftsman which elaborates on workroom layout and tools, metal properties and gemstone cuts, common and specialized techniques--more, in fact, than the novice or amateur might want but just what a somewhat experienced designer might like. Deocrated with drawings of centuries-old pieces from different cultures, this features photographs of fine contemporary works and provides instructions for a large number of basic procedures including annealing, enameling, twisting wire (more than 50 combination movements), electroplating, soldering, making fittings and box snaps. A broad, useful reference with bibliography and supplier lists appended--but English titles and addresses predominate.
