The nice folks at Lark sent me a copy of The Penland Book of Jewelry: Master Classes in Jewelry Techniques and it is absolutely gorgeous and inspiring.

A really different kind of craft book, not a standard step by step book, and definitely not a beginner book. Gorgeous full color and now in paperback.

Another in the series is the one on glass, also wonderful:
