    The Complete Jewelry Making Course by Jinks McGrath – A wonderful book on jewelry techniques, July 6, 2009

    This review is from: The Complete Jewelry Making Course: Principles, Practice and Techniques: A Beginner’s Course for Aspiring Jewelry Makers (Paperback)

    I really like the way this book is set up. All the information is presented in easy to read and remember “bullets”. It’s aimed at beginners and should give any beginner a real grasp of the essential techniques and tools of the trade.

    The book starts with an overview of tools (types of tools and how to use them, their care and maintenance) and materials (a lot of information about working with various metals and their properties). There are also tips on where to look for design ideas and how to evaluate and translate your ideas into designs you can use.

    The next section includes thirty-four units on various facets of jewelry making – annealing, soldering, bending, polishing and finishing, using a draw plate, texturing, and more. Each of these units is broken down into tips and how-tos – with lots of photos to supplement the text. The section on annealing has several tips plus some practice lessons in annealing wire and sheet metal.

    The final section of the book has a series of six projects that bring together all of the techniques you’ve been exploring in some neat designs – a ring, an etched bangle, and a textured pendant for example.

    I highly recommend this book – I use it as a ready reference. This is a great reference book for a beginning jewelry maker.

    This is a relatively good place to start metalsmithing if you have some knowledge of jewelry making. I’m very new using and forming metals, but I have been doing wirework and beading techniques for over five years. At some point beaders often have a desire to move on. This was a good choice for me when that time came. I am well pleased with this book.

    Exactly the same book as Hurst’s Step-by-Step book, October 12, 2008

    This review is from: The Complete Jewelry Making Course: Principles, Practice and Techniques: A Beginner’s Course for Aspiring Jewelry Makers (Paperback)

    I ordered this book with Nicola Hurst’s “Step-by-Step Jewelry Workshop” and was very disappointed to find that they were nearly identical.
    They used the same photographs and right down to some of the same text.

    For example, on page 11 of McGrath a section on Finding Inspiration is exactly the same text as Hurst’s pg 21. And there are many more instances of being exactly the same book with different covers.

    Neither books are bad, but don’t buy them both. In fact, find another less sleazy publisher than Quarto Books to provide your needs.

    I just received my bracelets yesterday (about a week early I might add!) and i LOVE THEM! I ordered 5 so that I could have a few extra for gifts, and now my only regret is that I didn’t order more. They are well made and all of the rinestones were in tact. They will fit well on almost any size wrist. Now I can’t wait for Christmas to give these to my friends. I hope they come back in stock soon so I can order more!!

    For the price, this one is fairly decent quality so I would definitely order again if I had to do it over. It’s hit or miss with this stuff from overseas, but this is a hit and I also purchased the matching hair clip which I also like.

    I remember them saying that it would take several weeks to arrive, but I received the bracelet in about a week. However, it arrived broken.

    My husband super-glued it together(the jeweled part separated from the bracelet) and now it’s fine. It’s very pretty for the price. However, I’m noticing that a couple of the light colored “jewels” have become cloudy. Seems kinda weird to me. I’ll still wear it though.
