5.0 out of 5 stars A must for those designing jewellery
This book cleverly covers most aspects of jewellery design, from representation through to the technical drawing that you may need if you don't have access to a cad program and want someone else to priduce your jewellery. If you are not drawing savvy it take a bit of work on the part of the reader to actually understand some aspects, but its something that you pick up...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really
OK quite a pretty coffee table book, but apart from that, no real detail about process. Talented participants , but it takes more than that to make a book that is actually useful to other designers / artists that want to improve or gain a different perspective and understanding. Or indeed students wishing to see "how to do it properly".

This review is from: DRAWING FOR JEWELERS (Master Classes in Professional Design) (Hardcover)
This book cleverly covers most aspects of jewellery design, from representation through to the technical drawing that you may need if you don't have access to a cad program and want someone else to priduce your jewellery. If you are not drawing savvy it take a bit of work on the part of the reader to actually understand some aspects, but its something that you pick up time and time again and can work through bit by bit until understood. Using the correct tones of silver and gold for showing finished pieces to a client is very clever and something I've never come across before. All in all an excellent book thats thorough and actually teaches you how to draw, a must for any designer maker who's a little shakey on the drawing side of things.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good presentation - but not for the first-timer, 25 July 2014

This review is from: DRAWING FOR JEWELERS (Master Classes in Professional Design) (Hardcover)
This is a good book, but not for for those who have no drawing / fabrication experience.

There is no information on fabrication (which is not the nature of the title of the book, but some small initial guidance might have been nice)

Though there is some great detail and examples of taking images into serious orthogonal and isometric detail (twisting, shaping etc.), the book lacks some background detail for those who are starting out - and this may well not be the purpose of the book, but that seems to be the way it is presented.

If you were picking this book as someone with no drawing or construction experience, it would not be my first choice.
If you have had some drawing or construction experience, I would recommend it. There are some great base design techniques.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not for professional jewellers, 26 April 2014
This review is from: DRAWING FOR JEWELERS (Master Classes in Professional Design) (Hardcover)
It may be good for basics, but the paint-ups and drawings are mediocre and defenetly not of any help for a professional jeweller.

Since my technical drawing skills for jewellery is a zero, this book is perfect for me. I would recommend anyone who is a beginner to start off with this book first.

Terrible book !! Poor illustrations with confusing over complex advice. A jewellery design book with no feeling for jewellery or design.

This review is from: DRAWING FOR JEWELERS (Master Classes in Professional Design) (Hardcover)
This book is so easy to read and understand. It's many years since I studied Graphic Art, Design and Drafting - this was a perfect re-introduction to this arena and a great jumping-off point for my studies, and further investigation of this subject. For me, worth having.

.The book was a gift to a jewellery designer. It needs some time to be able to give a reasoned evaluation of its contents and usability. The delivery was quick.
