I found a great book for just about anyone one is relatively
new to jewelry, or wants to brush up on some techniques, The
Complete Book of Jewelry Making by Carles Codine. Its a book from a
Spanish jeweler. Full color close ups of the part of the technique
you needed to see( not the part that you already know), along with
some really inspiring pieces. It covers the basics of soldering,
enameling, wax, ect., and has formulas for pitch and neillio,
repouse tech, and specific projects. The publisher is Larkbooks.
