Dedication

This book is dedicated to the many Indian silversmiths, good and bad, living and dead, who have ever practiced the art of silversmith ing, whose signed and unsigned works, many of which are pictured here, are appreciated, enjoyed and sought after by innumerable ad mirers.

This book is also dedicated to the many people who helped me to make it a reality - especially Richard Barrett II, a master craftsman, who was instrumental in constructing and completing many of the very difficult projects pictured here; and Connie Asch, silversmith, artist, and very patient person, whose humor made the work enjoyable. Last and most important, this book is dedicated to the silversmith who will use it and the ideas and techniques presented here to expand his knowledge and increase his skill.
