Unfortunately, this Book was unusable.

I received this book recently and attempted to read it twice. The smell of mildew was so overpowering that i could not get past the title pages. I researched methods to remediate the problem but none were certain or promising enough to risk handling or adding the book to my bookshelves. Sadly, i discarded it without reading.

Heal the Jewelry

He teaches you in plain easy to understand language. He gives lots of tips to help you. He gives good illustrations to help you. And he explains things well. I'm glad to have bought this book.

Another Dover reprint that is a good idea

This is another one of those times classics that has been updated. With the newer information. I have a 1st Edition this version has 130 pages added checking the index with updated info.This is not for the Beader,Newbie or Wire Twister. It will not add much to their enjoyment of their chosen field. If they are looking to expand their knowledge of the metalsmithing field this would be a low cost way to cover a lot of ground for a small price and might find themselves with a ready reference. I own the first edition I use it and will be looking for the dover reprint.

A Hobby Beader's Opinion

Very good for professionals in the jewelry-making business. Not necessary or applicable for the non-professional beader or wire jewelry maker.

An Excellent First Book On The Subject!

I wanted to understand the basics of what goes intojewelry repair and creation. Can I resize my ownrings? Can I set my own stones? What simplemaintenance can I do instead of having to paybig bucks to a professional, it just can't bethat hard!This book proved me right. It's a wonderfulreference and text. It's not too much, it's nottoo little, it's not too technical. Jewelerstools are shown and explained. If you wantto build a jewelry repair set up in your homethis will show you how to make one that's justright for you.Someone said it's "dated", which I would rephraseby saying it's a good, time tested and true basicsource of reliable up to date information. Thetricks they use out there and charge top dollarfor amazed me. I'm a smarter shopper now too.If you want one book on the subject, this reallyis a great choice.

An excellent primer

While a bit dated, this book presents an excellent primer for the beginning jeweler. It is written in a clear, concise manner, with excellent illustrations to support the text. If you are looking for a basic, how-to book to learn the time-tested methods of jewelry repair...this is your book!
