Weekly Review: Metalsmith's Book of Boxes and Lockets

One book a lot of metalsmiths find helpful is Metalsmith's Book of Boxes and Lockets by Tim McCreight.

The techniques demonstrated in this book are essential for creating hollow forms such as boxes and lockets, and can be used for many other pieces as well. Such techniques include how to make a variety of hinges, various ways to create hollow forms, as well as clasps and closures. I myself do not have this book yet, but have borrowed it when learning to make lockets, and it is definitely on my (rather lengthy) wish list of books.
