This book is the perfect opportunity to learn firsthand from one of the leaders in metal work.” --Belle Armoire Jewelry
“From basic materials to an index of color photographs and explanations on tools and supplies, this book is a must-have when tackling the art of altering metal! Basic techniques, tips, and methods are explained for a variety of beautiful metal designs created by heat, chemical, and force techniques.
