Item Description...
Experience the pleasure of crafting with precious metals, and of using your creativity and skills to produce objects of great beauty. Hundreds of color photographs illustrate the procedures in rich detail, and display a breathtaking assortment of pieces by talented artists. Each innovative project introduces techniques that range from casting, stamping, hand engraving, and electroplating to the more specialized Kum Boo, where sheets of gold are fused with silver to form lovely motifs. Begin with two handsome square rings or a traditional Berber bracelet with delicate filigree, and move on to an elaborate coffee service once basic techniques are mastered. The chapter on gems alone—featuring the work of Bernd Munsteiner, considered the best gem cutter in the world—makes this sourcebook invaluable!

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good book, but kind of all over the place content wise  Dec 13, 2007
This, like the other Jewelry books by Codina have great visual content and show interesting techniques. Unlike the others, some of the information is nearly useless to the average studio jeweler. Some chapters are more like Mr. Rogers where you go see how something is made, but you would never make it yourself because of the equipment required.
Small chapters on Image and Photography were happy little additions.
Over all the book was more "look how" than "how to" but it's still a nicely put together book at a great price.
Interesting book  Nov 29, 2007
The book is very interesting and the pictures are descriptive and fun to look at. The book covers many different things like Casting, Silversmithing,Jewelry making and more. Nice and stylish items shown in the book with direction. Very different than many Jewelry books. I am glad that I added this book to my collection.
Buy this book   Aug 21, 2007
In the herd of recent books, this one distinguishes itself in it's quality of images, concise accurate descriptions and scope.
This work seems to be the product of much labor, research and maybe even love. I have to hand it Codina, he's the kind of person that should be writing books.
Among the outstanding pieces represented is a North African bracelet made step by step by two Algerian women. Definitely not the kind of entry you find in many American publications flooded with "art school" drivel from self promoting arrogant twits so prominent in publications today.
The alternative casting techniques section is a seminar in itself, and just when I thought I new everything!
Don't get me wrong, there are a few downright ugly pieces, though I can easily overlook them if favor of the splendid work that predominates throughout.
Telling, is a closing statement where he thanks the contributors and gives a bit of insight into the writing of this fine book.
If you don't have this publication, then buy it. Trust me on this.
FANTASTIC  Aug 15, 2007
I have bought many many books and some I will never open again! Then some I can't keep the pages in they are used so much. This will sure to be one of those this book by Charles Codina is awesome. This book is a RARE find. It is imformative and visually stunning. I suggest not missing out on this one!

Happy jewelry making!

Excellent Book!  Jun 21, 2007
This book is a favorite of mine. There are many types of smithing to learn in this book. Although the pictures and descriptions are limited somewhat, the book does give enough information to get anyone who works with metal started on any of the work in this book. The pictures are excellent in layout and design. This book not only makes a good instruction book for the metal worker, but it is also an excellent coffee table book as well.
