A Good Read

I have an extensive collection of jewelry making books on my shelves and am obviously still collecting.  As I’ve been an admirer of Joanna Gollberg’s work for a long time, I  purchased her book “The Art and Craft of Making Jewelry“.  There are many photos in the book.  The project step-by-step photos are helpful and the gallery photos are pure eye candy!  I would recommend this book to both beginning and intermediate jewelry students as it consists of brief two to three page descriptions of many jewelry making techniques which may be quite  beneficial to the beginning student who would like to pursue the craft, but hasn’t yet developed the skill or knowledge as to the areas they would like to pursue.  The projects however, are most definitely not geared to the beginner, but better suited to the skilled intermediate or advanced student.  Inspiration is always welcome and this book delivers that!
