Product Details

Praise

UK jewelers Waard and Richardson team up to produce one of the most comprehensive beginner’s guides to jewelry silversmithing available. Every section, whether overviews of tools and materials or one of the seven projects, is well illustrated with color photographs, used in step-by-step sequence to explain the nuances of soldering a ring or crafting jump rings. The same careful in-depth education applies to each project, from a simple ring to a fused pendant and stud earrings set. Core and additional skills, materials, and tools needed are highlighted before the main how-to event. Readers will find troubleshooting advice within each project, such as what to do when the ends aren’t close enough to solder or they’re not aligned. An emphasis on safety is spotlighted throughout in sidebars as well as in the narrative. Novice enthusiasts might be deterred by the pages of equipment (without much mention of cost)—with only 18 designated as essential. Appendixes include a table of ring size conversions, piercing saw blade sizes, table of gauges and sizes, and Mohs scale of hardness.
