This is an Illustrated Text Book for Teachers, Students of Design, and Craft Workers in Jewelry. The ancient, highly skilled craft of manipulating gold, silver, precious, and semi-precious stones into jewelry is here set forth in a practical text. The authors take you through a graded series of problems, progressing from simple to complex pieces, teaching you all you need to know along the way. All the problems are fully illustrated and with 53 different design ideas, as well as photographs of the tools and processes involved. Subsequent problems teach you to make brooches set with stones, chased and repoussé brooches, wire pendants, rings with different types of settings, chains, and cuff links.
