Book: Silversmithing for Jewelry Makers: A Handbook of Techniques and Surface Treatments by Elizabeth Bone
Expert jeweler and silversmith Elizabeth Bone offers a comprehensive guide to techniques, surface treatments, and innovations specifically designed for jewelry makers working in silver.

You will learn basic skills and specialized techniques, including filigree, chasing, annealing, engraving, etching, casting, and more. With about twenty years of metal jewelry-making experience, Elizabeth bridges the gap between traditional and contemporary skills, offering the best of both worlds.
Each section highlights profiles of contemporary artisans, with galleries illustrating a range of beautifully crafted finished works. Plus the handy resource section details the need-to-know information for selling your jewelry.
