Great, but not for novices!!

This is a really good book for the most part. The photos are great as are the drawings. It goes into strong detail about how the pieces are created. The artist bios are interesting as well. This book is NOT for novices however. One would want to take atleast a couple college level jewelry classes (I'd suggest three) before trying out some of these designs. I'd also suggest working with less expensive materials (silver and copper) instead of gold. The instructions weren't quite as clear as I would have hoped, but once again they are geared towards professionals (or atleast someone with like knowledge). Other than that, the book is quite good. I would suggest everyone to have this in their jewelry library.

Very helpful and insightful.

This is a great book for anyone interesed in the art of making jewelry. Lots of great tips are included, and it's written in a very easy-to-read and follow fashion.

A rare find and a constant companion

I bought Alan Revere's "The Art of Jewelry Making : Classic & Original Designs" to augment my study in jewelry design and fabrication. In it, Alan presents 25 highly accomplished jewelry artists, and detailed instructions to recreate signature projects from each artist. The book is filled with vibrant photographs and introduces readers to some of the biggest names in the business. So inspired by Michael Sugarman's 'Boulder Bracelet' on page 57, I designed and constructed an original bracelet of my own utilizing key concepts I learned from the book. Learning so many different techniques from a single volume makes this book a rare find and a constant companion through my studies.

This book is a heaven sent for most jewelers and want to be jeweler/designer. Well laid out with plenty of room for making notes along side the supereme graphics, the best detail that I have seen in any lack book in some time. It is informative with excellent use of other artists and the various styles of each. This book is a must for the library of every aspiring jeweler/designer.
