I'm looking for a book with plenty of design ideas and step by step instructions/photos. Thanks for your help!

Not a book, but check Tanya Veit's web site for her DVDs. Tanya specializes in dichroic jewelry. If you look around on YouTube, you may also find some of the free clips she's done. Just this past weekend she had a freebie that was posted for 72 hours (could still be floating around out there somewhere). She calls them "Saturday videos" (the free ones).

Art Jewelry Magazine would be a good place to start.

Hi All,

There are a million and one jewelry books and quite a few magazines available as well....but one of the gold standards is Tim McCreight's "The Complete Metalsmith."
....look to your local library for what they may have.

The magless howto's are worth of a good look.
