Net Galley Book Review:
Have you ever wanted to make jewelry? : First Time Jewelry Making: The Absolute Beginner’s Guide is the book you need. It starts with a discussion of all the tools with explanations and large photos of each. Next is a comprehensive review of jewelry findings (earrings, clasps and connectors) and an explanation of when or why to use them.
The rest of the book is divided into 6 general sections – Bead Stringing, Wirework, Chain Making, Fabricating Metal (using metal sheets and wire into jewelry without soldering), Metal Clay, and Resin. With an
abundance of large close-up photos this make it the user friendly book you need . I guarantee that no matter how much jewelry you’ve made before or never made any this book is perfect.
Thank you to Quarto Publishing Group – Quarry Books and NetGalley for an advance reader copy in exchange for my honest opinion.
