Excellent resource
Beautifully illustrated and well written. A wonderful go-to resource in a sturdy hard cover book. I got it on sale so inexpensively I feel like Jesse James. Highly recommended. Review by CheekyMonkey (Posted on 6/28/2015)
I am totally blown away!
I am totally blown away! This is one book that I will read cover to cover. ANYONE interested in adding color to their jewelry should own this. I learned so much that I cannot wait to try.

I know of no university classes that even come close to delving into the subject with such intensity. Not only are the examples of finished jewelry inspiring, the entire book is well organized and the photos are clear and beautifully presented.

This book should be in every jewelry artists library.
