Metalsmithing Essentials - A Goldsmith's Guide to Jewelry Techniques by James Carter Studio
“When are you going to make a video?” After years of being asked this question by his students, James Carter has created a 2010 comprehensive and in-depth tutorial on 3 projects. These projects encompass what he considers to be essential and universal metalsmithing skills that are used in all facets of jewelry making. The projects that are clearly demonstrated in a step by step format are: the bezel, the hinge and the clasp. Techniques covered in the video include metal fabrication, soldering, proper use of the jeweler’s saw, metal texturing and finishing. This DVD is packed with a wealth of information gleaned from 35 years of experience in the trade.
