At London Jewellery School we have been lucky enough to receive review copies of the first two books in a new series of jewellery books put together by the editor of Making Jewellery magazine editor Sian Hamilton – Stringing and Linking Jewelry Workshop and Wirework Jewelry Workshop.
Each book brings together clear and comprehensive technique sections with a wide range of projects previously published in the magazine.
The result is two clearly laid out books with plenty of attractive photography showing all the stages of the various common techniques and the projects. This clean look make the book very attractive as well as useful.
The projects have been chosen to give plenty of variety in techniques and styles – so there is something for everyone and plenty of inspirations for your jewellery making.
These books are a great addition to any beader or wireworker’s bookshelf. For beginners they will help develop technical skills and provide interesting jewellery making challenges. For more experienced makers, they will act as a useful resouce on various skills and a source of ideas.
Please note that Sian will be speaking at our evening of jewellery sector talks on 28 May 2015. Click here for details.
