Reviews

Clear and well written with explanations supported by lots of illustrations and examples ... I couldn't find a technique that was missing and the range is impressive ... One of the joys of looking through a book like this is that it includes a really good variety of images to illustrate a point about design, choice of metals and stones, fabrication technique, or step-by-step instructions. The quality of the photography is excellent with rich colours and beautifully lit gems glowing on almost every page. The print quality has insured that none of the allure of sumptuous stones is lost. * Findings: The Magazine of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery *
