If you buy only one book on any subject of jewellery, this one
is the one to get. frugal or not it's worth every penny. The
titile is Jewellery Concepts and Technology, by Oppi Untracht.
I second this. The book is amazing! Has everything you couldever want to know about making jewelry. I am frugal myself, butwhen I came across this book I had no trouble shelling out the$100. Well worth it.
Regarding Oppi's "Jewelry Concepts and Technology" - If anyoneis thinking of getting it, you might want to do so while you canstill find one for "only" $100. Powell's book store just got insome more and have them priced at $125.!!!
Regarding Oppi's "Jewelry Concepts and Technology" -
Has anyone compared both of Oppi's books? Do they coverdifferent materials, or would owning both be redundant? I have"Concepts and Technology" and would consider buying his firstbook if it is not the same material. The one I own iswonderful....
There is another book by Oppi called "Metal techniques forcraftsmen" probably about the same price. Well worth having!Richard W UK

Yes, I have both books, and the second is well worth buying. Thefirst book is mostly an overview of techniques; if you want toknow more, get the second book. It's loaded with great info.Metalsmth
