Jewelry, Fundamentals of Metalsmithing
by Tim McCreight
Hand Books Press
Yes, yet another Tim McCreight book on metalsmithing they have been progressing along over time. To end up with the Pro edition of the Complete Metalsmith.

    * Cutting&Bending
    * Pattern,Texture & Contour
    * Fusing & soldering
    * Cold Joining
    * Finishing & Patinas
    * Stone Setting
    * Mechanisms & Chains
    * Casting
    * Appendices

The metal smithing arts and art form used in the way of body adornment. It does contain more then the previous book, but less than the latest Pro edition of the Complete Metalsmith.
Another or maybe the only one if you are unsure of your knowledge base about getting in to making jewelry.

It is filled with color pictures of work by a large number of metal smiths/artist. Along with both B&W and color drawings.
It is a eye candy delight if nothing else.

This is another that ends up in a lot of libraries.

Raise the Dead!
        Walk on water!
                 Fix a broken heart!
and I'm working on the first two!
