The Encyclopedia of Jewelry Making Techniques is a great book for first time jewelry makers, giving one hundred and seventy six pages of very useful information. There are thirty-two techniques in chapter form, discussed in total. Introducing everything from tools used, casting, riveting metals to stamp making blanks. There is a three-chapter section focusing on themes, which covers metal, stones and mixed media. The opening page shows an extreme close up of Andrew Cooperman’s very organic necklace from his “Bandage” series, inviting you in. Each chapter walks you though the process to ensure you understand the procedure that you are choosing with step-by-step close up photographs and captions, though a few of the chapters are too short to cover the techniques selected. In the themes section, the use of gallery work form other artists inspire you to dream big. The information in this book is easy to understand and follow, allowing you to use this book to help you with your jewelry making classes, encouraging you to want to take more. Jinks McGrath is an author of fourteen books, covering the topics of enameling, inlay, engraving, graduation to complete jewelry making courses. She is also an instructor as well as an exhibitor.
