A good reference guide,

This review is from: Goldwork (RSN Essential Stitch Guides) (Royal School of Needlework Guides) (Spiral-bound)
A very good comprehensive little guide to goldwork techniques. As someone with experience in goldwork I would rate this book highly for the way it describes all the main techniques from elementary to advanced. I especially like how she uses traditional techniques in a contemporary way - the use of different coloured metals for example. Also lke the section on Or Nue which is quite different from other forms of goldwork. Photographs are very clear and I would think that anyone with no knowledge of goldwork would be able to produce a satisfactory piece from this book. A good book to have in your library.
