Amateur jewelry makers who want to solidify their skills and beginners who've always wanted to explore the world of metalsmithing need look no further. Fueled by Corkie Bolton's 14+ years of professional experience, as well as her invaluable insight into the rich tradition of the craft, this book covers every secret of the trade that aspiring jewelry makers need-from ideation, choosing tools and creating one's ideal workbench, to confidently crafting each piece and adding finishing touches that give them a professional look.

Through stylish, timeless designs, readers will gain essential skills like how to solder and assemble chains, such as in Chain Studs and Stacking Rings. They'll push themselves creatively by learning how to melt and work with different kinds of metals with Marriage of Metal Studs and Interlocking Rings. Stamped Bangles and Thick Bezel Pendant will help readers with stonecutting and polishing the surface of their pieces. What's more, a section of the book is dedicated to Community Tips-Corkie's favorite tried-and-true tips she's learned from fellow jewelry makers-which will spotlight pointers like DIY tool modifications and sanding, as well as organization and storage.

Whether readers are creating these striking pieces for themselves, to gift to loved ones or for their own jewelry line, The Metalsmith Society's Guide to Jewelry Making will have them creating like a pro from their very first project.
