A word from the authors:

“The wonderful thing about etching is the personal signature that is easily added to each piece created. Deep textures, as well as layers of patterns and images, create a virtual landscape of depth.” —Ruth Rae & Kristen Robinson

Has it's good points
I was hoping for a book that would walk me through the steps to making a wearable piece of resin jewelry that didn't look like all I did was pour the resin into a mold and attach it to a chain. Unfortunately, for me, I found the directions for making the interesting resin pieces lacking, even with being somewhat experiences with working with wire weaving and constructing jewelry. I also had difficulty with making the simple creative handmade bezels, not being able to contain the resin within the bezel in spite of repeated attempts at following the directions. I like looking through the book for ideas but find I am turning to other resources to help me on my learning journey. Review by Barb (Posted on 7/27/2016)
