Book review: The Encyclopedia of Contemporary Jewelry Making Techniques


Think of this new book as an overview of what is possible. It's not nearly detailed enough to be a true how-to book, but it covers so many different materials that it will probably boggle your mind with possibilities and send you racing for your notebook!

This book covers far more than beading techniques, so look elsewhere if you'd like an introduction to beadwork. This is a guide for an experimental jewelry who wants to create one-of-a-kind jewelry using modern techniques and materials. There are instructions and photographs outlining how to work with rubber, resin, glass, leather, paper, plastics, ceramics, textiles, and much more. But again, each chapter is an introduction, so you should plan to use this book to inspire your search for the next great thing you want to try.

A very beautiful and compelling book. Now where did I leave my notebook...?
