The process of designing jewelry has never before been explored in a book. It has taken the combined talents of three top jewelry designers, including a profess who teaches the skill to jewelry students, to create this beautiful and practical step-by-step format. Starting with a fully illustrated discussion of design principles and metal and stone rendering techniques, this volume then presents progressive detailed sketches and finished drawings of many varieties of ring and earring designs. From such drawings the manufacturing jeweler can assemble the objects themselves. This book teaches one how to create those drawings. "It is a book that I have searched for, in vain, for many years. It is both the first and undoubtedly the best, and will remain the best for many years. This book is destined to become the bible of the designer, the guide of the artisan, and the companion of the jewelry lover."

Many engraving books on the market illustrate the forms and appearance of finished designs but fail to provide adequate instructions for actual engraving. In sharp contrast, this comprehensive and practical manual by two educators and master craftsmen teaches every step of the engraving process. Clear, step-by-step instructions, accompanied by scores of illustrations, tell how to cut initials and inscriptions using a variety of alphabets, including script, ribbon, vertical script, and Roman letters as well as block and Old English. You'll also learn how to design and cut initials in monograms, what forms to use for properly decorating and embellishing engraved work, and how to correctly shape and maintain tools, particularly square script gravers — a tool basic to many different kinds of engraving. A glossary of terms and extensive, helpful question-and-answer section round out this immensely beneficial guide. While practicing artisans will find many useful suggestions for improving their professional work, beginners will especially consider The Jewelry Engravers Manual a valuable tool for mastering the art of engraving.

We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
