There are two books I regularly refer to for technical help. This one and a book by Joanna Gollberg. This has so much technical data, it'll be spilling out your ears, but for all that, it's easy to read and follow. Diagrams rather than photos, but this doesn't detract from the instruction. It is basically a half page to 2 page review on pretty much any jewellery technique you can think of. I think that to cover it in detail, you'll need to ALSO get his other books which will have a gallery of work and projects. This book does NOT have projects. It is a reference book.
