Complete Metalsmith by Tim McCreight

Book description
I've had and used McCreight's original "Complete Metalsmith" for years and wasn't sure I needed the new version. After owning it for several months now I couldn't be happier. The author assumes that the reader is as interested in WHY things happen as he is. This is not a step-by-step project book, but a bench tool. Do you need to know how to score metal to make a sharp corner? How can you tell when a piece of metal is annealed? Have you been bezel setting stones and are now ready to advance to a prong setting? Ready to make a hinge? Casting? Fusing? Repoussé? Need to know what the Precious Metal Clay craze is about and how to start? It's all in here and the information is presented in a format made for the beginner or the experienced jeweler. He even covers how to photograph your work. I love that McCreight shows several ways of doing things so that if you don't have the equipment or tools, you can still proceed. In his typical style, the author has thought of everything. He's even made a smaller and less expensive version of the book for the "starving artists" and students among us

Spiral-bound: 208 pages.

Jewelry Concepts and Technology by Oppi Untracht

Book description
Nearly ten years in preparation and production, Jewelry Concepts and Technology is the definitive guide and handbook for jewellery makers on all levels of ability. It is also a unique reference source for those not directly active in the field but who wish to gain an understanding of what lies behind the jewellery-making mystique. All traditional as well as innovative contemporary techniques are thoroughly described, making this. The more than 900 photographs in colour and black and white illustrate work of all degrees of complexity and show the incredible range of concepts which jewellers in all times, including today, incorporate in their work. Historic and ethnic jewellery, as well as contemporary work done by approximately 300 jewellers from twenty-six countries, are grouped under particular technical processes. This arrangement dramatically illustrates the mutual bonds between today's creative jewellers and their colleagues: historic style-oriented, and anonymous, tradition-dominated ethnic jewellers. The detailed text is accompanied by 377 illustrations showing tools and processes used to carry out particular techniques. In addition, thirty step-by-step photo demonstrations show master jewellers working from raw material to finished jewels, some of them revealing their methods for the first time. Supplemented by an extensive index, glossaries of jewellery forms and findings, and an international sources supply list, Jewelry Concepts and Technology is indispensable for anyone interested in any aspect of jewellery making.

Making a Natural Trumpet. an Illustrated Workshop Guide by Richard Seraphinoff, Raymond Parks, and Robert Barclay

Book description
This book illustrates each stage in the manufacture of a natural trumpet, starting from flat brass sheet and following as closely as possible the methods, materials and tools of 17th and 18th century craftsmen; the metalworkers of Nürnberg, who worked with a basic technology that relied for its speed and efficiency on hand skill. Using their simple tools and techniques anybody can make a trumpet very much as they did. The text is profusely illustrated with colour photographs taken at one of the trumpet-making workshops which have been successfully run by Bob Barclay and Rick Seraphinoff over several years. Participants have included players, makers and repairers of modern instruments, historians and collectors. All have left with a real appreciation of the craft of the baroque trumpet maker, and have produced their own playable instrument, a copy of a trumpet made by Hanns Hainlein in Nürnberg in 1632. The descriptions cover the processes by which tubes are seamed and joined, bells are hammered to shape and then burnished on a mandrel, bows are filled with molten metal and bent, and decorations are engraved and punched.

The Contemporary Blacksmith by Dona Z. Meilach, Daryl Meier (Introduction), Stephen Bondi (Contributor)

Book description
This important new book tackles the burgeoning revival of the blacksmith's art. Author Dona Meilach has brought together over 500 works by nearly 200 artist-craftsmen from sixteen countries to illustrate the unprecedented activity in modern ironwork that has led to its blossoming into a serious art form. You'll learn several techniques using hot and cold forming with the results clearly shown. You'll be able to recognize how a fence, railing, grille, table, chair, knife, and other items evolve, and better appreciate their design and workmanship. Each chapter provides background for the type of objects shown-- architectural ironwork, sculpture, furniture, containers and vessels, lighting fixtures and candleholders, fireplace accessories, wind vanes, household and liturgical items, and the incredible knives made of Damascus steel. You'll find ample information for how and where to begin your own study in this extensive resource list of organizations, Internet sources, publications, museums, and educational opportunities. The Contemporary Blacksmith** undoubtedly should be found in the libraries of every metalworker, art educator, architect, interior designer, ironwares collector, and crafts person.
