5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recomended 24 Oct 2010
Format:Hardcover
I recommend 'The Workbench Guide to Jewelry Techniques' to any one who has an interest in silversmithing.
Having completed a short jewellery course I was looking for a book that would help jog my memory of basic and advanced techniques.It has step by step notes which are easy to follow and is illustrated clearly to aid your learning.
This book is full of useful tips and a clear explanation of all equipment needed to get you started with a view to building your workbench to a professonal standard.It has a comprehensive list of suppliers for all your jewellery needs.
It will become an inavaluable source of information to aid your creativity.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Workbench Guide to Jewelry Techniques 4 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a very informative book written so it makes easy reading with pictures and diagrams which helps even more. I wouldnt recommend it for people that had never had any experience with silver soldering etc, but once you have mastered that, the rest should make sense. I have only been on a 12 week evening course at the local College for one evening a week, so I am not an experienced jeweller by any means and I found it easy to try some of the techniques in the book. I have to say some of the things just ended up a mangled mess, but some I am quite proud of and I have also sold some to friends, which pays for the silver.

5.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive Information 26 Sep 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book covers virtually everything you want to know about making silver jewellery. It has lots of pictures and gives excellent explanations for all the processes used. If you are seriously interested in making jewellery this is probably the only book you will ever need.

I love this book. As a reference guide to an exhaustive range of techniques it would be difficilt to beat - it has already become indispensible. The illustrated instructions are clear and concise and the pictures of designer jewellery are inspirational.
Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars The Workbench Guide to Jewellery Techniques. 22 Jun 2012
By Tina
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Bought this because it was one of the stock books on my College Jewellery Course. Good clear instructions for the beginner and more advanced maker. A good all round guide to jewellery making techniques, but if you want to attempt some of the more complicated techniques further instruction will probably be needed.
