This book is much like the Complete Metalsmith Guild but not as in depth. It has step by step guilds and photos for the same techniques as the Guild. I chose to include it because it has a couple of additional sections. This book looks at incorporating not just stones, but how to incorporate wood, plastics, and resins into your jewelry work. It also discusses how to take a idea and translate it in to a piece, something many people have problems with.

While this book doesn't contain all of the techniques contained in The Complete Metalsmith book it covers basic techniques such as soldering, cutting, and various metalworking techniques in great depth. It also contains a lot of photographs of contemporary jewelry that students could get ideas from. It is included in this textbook set as another reference and a different point of view on metalworking techniques.
