New Jewelry Book Reviews

Blogged under Good Books,Jewelry Designing by Tammy on Saturday 20 March 2010 at 9:55 am

Though the economy still isn’t doing that well and publishing, like so many industries, has been struggling, I’m happy to say that there are still a lot of great jewelry books coming out these days. Here are a few jewelry making book reviews I’ve published on my About.com Jewelry Making site over the past few months in case you missed any of them:


A Bead in Time by Lisa Crone includes 35 beading projects plus tips for designing jewelry using inspiration found all around us.


Seed Bead Fusion: 18 Projects to Stitch, Wire and String by Rachel Nelson-Smith brings together wire techniques and seed bead stitches to create some truly unique jewelry designs.


The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Jewelry Making Techniques: Plastic, rubber, metal and more are covered in this technique-heavy jewelry that examines contemporary jewelry making.


Enchanted Adornments is a mixed media book written by Cynthia Thornton covers a mixture of metal clay, wire, resin, and more.


Beyond the Bead: Making Jewelry with Unexpected Finds by Margot Potter is a mixed-media feast for jewelry makers who are ready to move their skills beyond bead stringing.


Totally Twisted: Innovative Wirework and Art Glass Jewelry by Kerry Bogert combines simply wire techniques with colorful lampwork beads.
