This book offers many enticing ideas. The first sections, on technique, display a wider range than many books. It goes over the rudiments of raised work, e.g. forging a bowl seamlessly from a flat sheet of silver, and demonstrates spinning. Best suited to larger shops, spinning uses wooden form mounted in a lathe, then forces a sheet of metal down onto that turning form using heavy burnishers and massive leverage. Then, unlike other books that concentrate on either the larger or smaller scales, this also presents basic techniques used in making jewelry - and this section includes a number of unusual small-scale casting techniques. Modern techniques like hydraulic forming appear here, something that other texts have yet to catch up with. It also describes the basics of engraving, and how that can be used for inlays of different metals.

Successive section present gemstones and lapidary work, a gallery of masterworks, some projects, and an interesting section on the profession. Perhaps other books dedicate themselves to this topic, but seeing it mentioned at all adds depth to the discussion. After all, what amateur hasn't at least thought of making a real business of it? This includes tips on presentation, packaging the work, and photography, as well as descriptions and case studies of the creative process.

Serious weaknesses prevent me from giving this book highest marks. Because of its breadth, each topic necessarily gets brief (although beautifully illustrated) discussion. Don't come to this expecting detailed instruction in any of its topics. It helps to have a strong working knowledge already, to help fill in the steps missing in techniques that might be new to you. Likewise, brevity forced many omissions. For example, neither etching nor chasing get any mention, nor do workhorse tools like saws. And, even with its emphasis on gems, stone-setting is barely mentioned in passing.

So, it's interesting, well written and laid out, wide-ranging, and it contains many approaches I haven't seen before. Just don't expect it to to cover everything you might want to know, or to cover its topics in the detail you might hope for.

In the herd of recent books, this one distinguishes itself in it's quality of images, concise accurate descriptions and scope.
This work seems to be the product of much labor, research and maybe even love. I have to hand it Codina, he's the kind of person that should be writing books.
Among the outstanding pieces represented is a North African bracelet made step by step by two Algerian women. Definitely not the kind of entry you find in many American publications flooded with "art school" drivel from self promoting arrogant twits so prominent in publications today.
The alternative casting techniques section is a seminar in itself, and just when I thought I knew everything!
Don't get me wrong, there are a few downright ugly pieces, though I can easily overlook them if favor of the splendid work that predominates throughout.
Telling, is a closing statement where he thanks the contributors and gives a bit of insight into the writing of this fine book.
If you don't have this publication, then buy it. Trust me on this.

This, like the other Jewelry books by Codina have great visual content and show interesting techniques. Unlike the others, some of the information is nearly useless to the average studio jeweler. Some chapters are more like Mr. Rogers where you go see how something is made, but you would never make it yourself because of the equipment required.
Small chapters on Image and Photography were happy little additions.
Over all the book was more "look how" than "how to" but it's still a nicely put together book at a great price.

This is a delightful book. While it does have "step-by-step" technique descriptions, it is not a textbook. Rather, it's a personal collation of information and metalsmithing techniques, demonstrated in a series of projects, with side trips into gem cutting, photographing jewelry, advertising, packaging and a few features on individual artists.

Codina states in his introduction his intention to share his own passion for metal work and inspire the reader, as well as to honor the work of individual craftsmen, such as the men and women featured in the book, who practice metal smithing at the highest level, often anonymously.

He features a series of projects highlighting various metal smithing skills, including lathe forming, fabrication, hollow forms, electroforming, engraving, bezel, prong set and pavé stone setting. A heavily ornamented, traditional Morrocan bracelet, and an elaborate hinged bracelet decorated with cast and hand-formed elements, and pavé diamonds are especially impressive. Not every step is illustrated - you are already familiar with the basics, right? Rather, the goal is to inspire.

Because there are so many different techniques for making fine jewelry most jewelers master some, but never all of them. Many "how to" books show the author demonstrating some techniques which she's mastered and some she hasn't. The step-by-step instructions may lack important details and the finished pieces look like student work.

Not so here. Each project shows the author, or another metalsmith with complete masterey of the technique, doing the process and achieving professional results. All featured jewelers and metal workers, stone cutters, even the miners in a Bolivian gem mine, are named, most pictured, and all given credit for their work.

And it's fun to see them working... the two Morrocan women who fabricate traditional ethnic jewelry, the skilled lathe turner in his paper hat who makes the sterling coffee set, or Codina's friends who help him with casting. As we follow the project steps, we have the opportunity to see how these craftspeople think and learn some of their methods.

Codina's pleasure in the community of dedicated metal workers is infectious, as is his belief in the honor of making beautiful things by hand in an age of mass production. This is a metalsmithing book with heart.
