Hinges and Hinge-Based Catches for Jewelers and Goldsmiths
by Charles Lewton-Brain - Complete Edition

This book analyzes hinges and hinge-like mechanisms in a manner
never done before in a single volume. We feel it will be a classic.
Along with history, generics, classes of hinges, guiding principles,
sections include: design, tube making, hinge pins (force-fit,
riveted, upset, tapered, cotter type, tubing, square, threaded,
stud), hinge types (basic, thick-walled, locket, bracelet, box,
block, cold-rolled, tab, cast and milled), lubrication, catch
systems, hidden, alternative, cast hinges and solving design
problems. Good index and table of contents. 112 pages, over 200 line
drawings.

Lost Wax Jewelry Making: The Build-up Technique
by Minoru Azama - Complete Edition

One of the few books available on wax modelmaking; “Lost Wax Jewelry
Making: The Build-up Technique” by Minoru Azama, printed in Japanese
by Kashiwa Hobby Books. 1999.

Azama process emphasizes building up wax as opposed to starting with
a wax blank and carving away material. He uses this approach for
organic as well as geometric subjects. The potential of this
technique is unlimited!

Azama’s work is outstanding, some of it so very precise and
geometric that one would think it had been carved of hard wax. The
book was written for students at the Japan Jewelry Academy, and Mr.
Azama has been generous enough to write a complete English
translation.
