Take a fresh look at the ancient craft of silversmithing with 18 projects that teach a solid body of skills. This full-color, comprehensive manual provides artisans with a thorough understanding of silver’s properties: what it is and how it behaves. Beginning, intermediate, and advanced techniques are explained and then applied to craft amazingly beautiful items, from accessories to wearables and extraordinary gifts. Use brushing, sawing, piercing, and polishing procedures to fashion a simple bud vase. Progress to a baby rattle or candleholder created with soldering, sinking, dapping, and forging techniques. Ultimately you’ll have the expertise to complete a martini set, lidded container, or teapot. The art of silversmithing has never been easier or more enjoyable.
