"London-based jewelry designer and teacher Bone introduces jewelry makers to the art and science of silversmithing in this collection of step-by-step tutorials on a variety of intermediate to advanced metalworking techniques. The coverage is extensive, including sections on texturing, etching, stone setting, and filigree. A brief explanation of silversmithing tools and materials is provided.
