This fascinating book contains a detailed guide on the craft of metalwork and jewellery making, written primarily for students and home craftsmen who are interested in metal craft, jewellery making, and gem cutting. It is based upon methods used by the author in teaching high school students, and many of the pieces of jewellery displayed in this text are the work of beginners who have only been working at the art for a short time. Chapters contained herein include: Metalcraft, Jewellery Making, The Art of Gem Stone Cutting, Identification of Gem Stones and Gem Minerals, and Dealers. This is the perfect book for beginners, and constitutes a great addition to any collection of related literature. Elected for modern republication due to its educational value, we are proud to republish this scarce text complete with an introduction to the subject.
