One of the books on my “buy if I ever find it cheap” list is Oppi Untracht’s Jewelry Concepts and Technology — possibly the best textbook on jewelry and related decorative metal techniques ever written.  Untracht traveled the world documenting both modern and ancient practices, and the only flaw in the book is that it’s now somewhat out of date, having last been revised in the 1980s.

It’s definitely one to check out from your local library (as I have, often).  At 860 pages, there’s something in here for every metalworker.

    I have that book. I have had it for about 16 years now, and no doubt it is every jewelers bible.
