How wonderful to find in one book everything you could possibly need to learn and marvel at this enthralling subject. How clever of the author to appeal to and inform the beginner with clear and inspirational descriptions of the many methods of enamelling, without either talking down in over-patronising simplicity, or scaring off with jargon and complexity. The photographs of contemporary work, the history of ancient and modern methods and materials, the elegant incorporation of all the above into each page to illustrate particular techniques makes this an invaluable reference for the know-all and the know-nothing. Quite an achievement. I wish I'd discovered enamelling years ago, and now that I have, this book will be a constant source of help and inspiration.

What a great book, lots of colour pictures explainations of tecniques used and loads more pictures. It's nice to have a book specifically dedicated to enamelling with modern information and pieces. Esentially, plenty of pics and commentary make this well worth a read.

This rather beautiful book is packed with excellent photographs of many styles of enamel jewellery art.

There is, however, a real shortage of information on how to achieve these beautiful results.

The Plique a Jour section for example looks at first as if it has a tutorial, but leaves many questions unanswered with absolutely no pictures of the actual process.

There are more illustrations of soldering techniques than enamelling!

This is a lovely picture album but you'll need another volume if you want to learn how to execute them yourself.

Excellent! As well as detailed methods, including the technical requirements of solutions and inspirations the book provides a very useful background to well known current British enamellers that I found very helpful. As an enthusiast you can check their background and spot their work. A very good buy.
