Remarks

Hugely ambitious … an invaluable ‘bible’ of information and facts for jewelry students of all levels of experience … there must be something for everyone in this unusual publication, which is rather like several books all wrapped in one!’
– Craftsman Craft & Design Magazine

' … clear and easy to navigate; the artists featured are current and inspirational; the business advice mirrors what we teach; it covers a huge area of jewelry in manageable fashion … We Love This!'
– Eyv Hardwick, Deptartment of Applied Arts, Cleveland College of Art and Design

'A highly useful tool in itself – Making Jewellery'
A fully illustrated authoritative and comprehensive step-by-step manual for jewelry making techniques, materials and design. The focus is on detailed explanation – with clear step-by-step photography used extensively – displaying expert techniques aimed at professional jewellers but also accessible to students of any level seeking a ‘bible’ of their craft.
– Thames & Hudson
