I do not profess to be an expert in working with metals (my medium is glass), but as a non-recommended purchase and as a beginner, I'm absolutely delighted. Mr Holschuh's book is packed with hugely inspiring designs, which you are shown how to make yourself. All the set-up/technical details are clearly explained too, so for me, it's comprehensive, easy to read, lots of good photography and therefore a very good buy. I highly recommend it.

Excelente projects, easy to follow and great pictures and presentation.
This is one of my treasures.
Even if you are not professional you can easily do most of the projects with a little patience.
And you get lots of detailed information as well.

I am a new user of P.M.C. and plan on becoming a silversmith. I do not want to specialise in only one medium and so have bought a couple of books in order to prepare myself for what lies ahead of me.

This book certainly does all of that! It's clear, concise and thorough. And although I personally don't like, and would never buy, any of the finished products as featured in the projects, I can appreciate them and the work that has gone into them. I can't wait to give them a try and see what I can achieve.

I love this book ,good detail , down to earth explanations and project that increase skills in the techniques. I have made several of the projects in this book with slight variations and have been complemented on my skill. I have only been doing metal jewellery for 18 months.

I bought this book with high hopes of finding a text living up to the subtitle 'studio handbook' but was severely disappointed.

The book is very poorly written and too imprecise to be of much value, a handbook it is certainly not. Concepts are used throughout the book without any precise definitions, subject bordering on the technical or on physics are incorrectly explained, revealing the author's ignorance. Concepts and methods which in a handbook should be illustrated by means of diagrams are either left unexplained or illustrated with imprecise photos.

The only positive quality of the book is a range of photos of modern jewellery that may serve as an inspiration - but you can get many more through a search engine much faster and cheaper - and again, the exact fabrication procedures are not explained in a single instance.

This book is not worth buying - very poor value.

I love this book, I still keep going back to it thinking what I would do if I had the time, money and energy. The pictures are great and it's written in easy to understand english. It's sparked ideas for me for other things using metal clay and resin just from looking at the designs. It doesn't cover those things but I have been able to use designs in here to make my own versions in materials I'm used to using.
