Working in 24k gold

Hello all,

I was just wondering if anyone out there can recommend a book or web
site that deals with workingin 24k gold. I’m also interested in
ancient jewelry techniques (more out of just curiosity than anything
else). I think it’s amazing that people created such beautiful
things thousands of years ago without some of the tools we have now.
I’d also like to recreate some of those gorgeous pieces and the
color of pure gold is a real eye-catcher. Thanks in advance.
