  • You’re considering hiring an apprentice for your jewelry studio.
  • You want to explore the latest trends in revival style jewelry.
  • You’re seeking to expand your repertoire of jewelry-making techniques.
  • You need to know about the latest tools for finishing your jewelry.

In the September/October 2019 digital issue of Lapidary Journal Jewelry Artist, you’ll learn all about jewelry apprenticeships — how hiring an apprentice can work for your own jewelry business and how today’s jewelry artists learned the craft from their own apprenticeships.

Do you like gemstones that sparkle and shine? This issue has them! The Smokin’ Stone is labradorite, one of the most popular stones on the market. You’ll also find a great labradorite pendant project by Kieu Pham Gray that adds a shell and blue topaz for more pop. And for another sparkler, Deborah Yonick’s Trends column shows you how top artists use moonstone in their designs.

Helen Driggs’s Cool Tools & Hip Tips column brings you the latest tools for finishing your pieces — abrasives, polishing compounds, and stone setting tools. And for more on stone setting, check out the ring project by Michael David Sturlin. He shows you a new technique for setting stones with carved prongs.

You’ll also find several projects in this issue which will allow you to practice and expand your repertoire of jewelry making techniques. Noël Yovovich shows you how to make a domed comfort-fit metal clay ring using a polymer clay mold. Want to play pirate? Roger Halas teaches you to mix alligator leather and metal for a swashbuckling look. And if you want to experiment with enamels, take a look at Peggy Haupt’s pendant with plique à jour flowers.
