Reviews - What do our customers think?
Beginners ONLY  Sep 6, 2008
Interested in designing your own metal jewelry. Start with this book FIRST. Learn the basics and if you love what you are doing - buy a more advanced book (there are several in various degree of complexity) or one that focuses upon the metal design subject you like best (e.g. cold soldering, chain designs, wire work, casting, setting stones). If you are not a beginner or know a thing or two about metal and how it can be manipulated, do NOT get this book. You will be disappointed and probably sell it or give it away. Therefore, the "GETTING STARTED" portion of the book's title is very appropriate and should be kept in mind when buying this book. A good series of books (there are other subjects in the Getting Started series) that are definitely for those wanting to dabble first before putting lots of money into setting up a studio focused on a particular art form.
not what i was looking for...  Dec 2, 2007
I make welded sculptures and want to venture into jewelrymaking.

I was looking for a book to explain setting stones in bezels plus making really creative silver pieces.

This isn't the book for either.

There are some flat pieces, a bell cap bracelet, a few simple band rings and a few other pieces. Most of the designs didn't seem especially inspired.

I'm sure the book I am looking for is out there. This just wasn't it.
Good for beginners  Oct 25, 2007
This book is clear, thorough, and offers manageable projects that sets the beginning metalsmith up for success. I needed a refresher for some of the ideas I learned in an earlier class, and found the book invaluable.
Finally, metalworking for real beginners  Sep 4, 2007
Other books I have on this subject are awfully advanced, and assume too much prior knowledge. This book has lots of detail in the instructions, both verbal and pictorial. The projects are simple, yet good-looking.
Clear and approachable...  Jul 1, 2007
This is a wonderful book to get you started with metal jewelry. Mark Lareau covers the basics such as tools and how to use them. He prioritizes the tools, which is helpful when you're on a budget. The book includes little mini-lessons such as a one-page course on how metals behave--did you know many metals have a crystalline structure?--and a three-page lesson on how soldering works. He even devotes a page to stringing your jeweler's saw! Some of the descriptions come from the kitchen (peanut butter sandwiches, for example).

Lareau has a wonderful, approachable style of writing and takes away any fear you may have of using unfamiliar tools and materials. He follows his lessons with a variety of basic projects which build on the information he's given and which slowly increase in difficulty. Throughout the book are large, clear photos showing just how the steps should look.
