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

About the authors:

Ruth Rae has an incredible talent for combining her deep love of treasures from the past with the cutting-edge trends of today. Ruth is known for her amazing jewelry creations, as well as mixed-media fabric work that combines textiles, words and found objects. Her artwork is recognized for its timeworn appearance, achieved through the layering of new and old, leaving the viewer feeling that they are taking in a creation from long ago.

Kristen Robinson is on the artistic journey of her life, one she compares to dancing through the pages of a history book. With a love of all things from the past and the stories locked within them, she is drawn to many different forms of art, from jewelry and textiles to painting and collage. Kristen is the author of Tales of Adornment: Techniques for Creating Resin Jewelry and the designer of Rue Romantique by Kristen Robinson, a designer bezel collection from Ice Resin.

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)
