This book has a nice overview of projects from 45 jewelry artists and includes a short bio of each designer at the end of the book. I liked the variety of materials and techniques covered.
The book is aimed at jewelry makers with experience. The majority of the projects include some form of metal work, i.e. sawing, drilling, hammering, wirework. The projects are described in a very streamlined fashion. Each turn of the page displays a new project. On one page there is a gallery photo of the finished piece. On the other page there is a “get ready” section listing used techniques; “get set” section listing needed tools and supplies; and the “go” section with a text description of the process. I think a few of the projects needed more detailed directions and /or an illustration for clarity. With 60 projects there is plenty to interest and inspire intermediate and advanced jewelry makers.
