Weekly Review: Jewelry Concepts and Technology by Oppi Untracht


Jewelry Concepts and Technology by Oppi Untracht is one of the "bibles" of metalsmithing. Imagine...over 800 pages filled with metalsmithing techniques and history, from basic soldering to fusing metals, to surface techniques and stone setting. Untracht also includes some history on adornment, which is well researched and photographed.
