This is followed by detailed information on preparing a graver including four bead-setting projects and two advanced channel setting projects. Like Revere’s companion book, Professional Jewelry Making, this book uses closeup photography and clear descriptions that make even challenging settings available to any committed jeweler. Photography by Christine Dhein Illustrations and layout by Tim McCreight.
