"McGrath, an experienced jewelry maker, condenses her knowledge of metalworking methods into this comprehensive reference that covers all steps of the process from the selection of tools and materials to design and creation of the finished piece. Some knowledge of the fundamentals is assumed: this isn't a beginner's book, though it would serve as an excellent resource for novices with a strong interest in learning more. With its thorough coverage of the topic, attractive photographs, and clear instructions, this title is an excellent addition to jewelry and metalwork collections." -- " Library Journal" starred review
