The Metalsmith Index of Educational Articles

Compiled by Pete Stanaitis

(updated 11/16/2004)

If you are lucky enough to have a full set of the Metalsmith, this index should help you find articles. As we place some of these articles onto the web site, we will provide hotlinks from this index.


This is a fairly low tech list. The topics are in alphabetic order, so you can start by trying to look up your topic.

A..B..C..D..E..F..G..H..I..J..K

..L..M..N..O..P..Q..R..S..T..U..V..W..X..Y..Z

If that doesn’t work, come on back here to the top of the page and use the find function in your browser, probably under EDIT or TOOLS in the menu. Enter a key word and try searching the page for it.

Here is an index of most of the instructional articles from the Guild of Metalsmith’s newsletter, The Metalsmith. These are only the articles which I felt had some instructional content.

A descriptive field offers additional information when needed. The database itself contains an additional (available if needed) attribute for the source of each article. The entry “Orig.” means that, as far as I know, the article was first published in The Metalsmith, itself. Otherwise, I credited either the source newsletter, or the source author.


The Guild of Metalsmiths, participates in an article exchange program with other members of Nonprofit educational metalworking organizations such as ABANA and her chapters. Articles may be used in other members not for profit publications but full credit for the article and it’s source publication must be given.

This web page is a publication of the Guild of Metalsmiths and the electronic rendering of portions of “The Metalsmith” are posted subject to those rules. They may be used in nonprofit educational publications but full credit for authorship and original publication must be given.

If you would like to use images or articles for any other purpose, contact the authors.
