An Excellent Resource for the Jeweler's Library
Reviewed in the United States on October 18, 2020
I had been working with silver for a little over a year when I purchased this book. It was so helpful to learn how to work more precisely using traditional techniques. We're so often taught today that modern (expensive) tools are the answer. They can increase productivity, but if you're not doing things 'right' from the start, they really don't help.
On a side note: I am working through projects as part of Alan's Facebook group 'Let's Make Professional Jewelry.' If you are looking for community and excellent feedback, I highly encourage you to check out the group. There two tracks of projects to work through, each over the course of a year.
