This volume contains a detailed guide to making jewellery, with chapters on history and development, setting up and maintaining a workshop, the proper use of tools, helpful exercises, and much more. “Hand-Made Jewellery” will be of considerable utility to those with little previous experiences, and it is perfect for those with more experience as a reference guide. Contents include: “Brief Historical Survey”, “Technical Developments, changing Fashions and their Effects on Technique”, “The Workshop”, “Materials”, “Basic Process”, “Decorative Process”, “Exercises”, “Design”, “List of Tools”, “Useful Tables and Equivalents”, “List of Birth Stones”, “List of Some of the more Popular Semi-precious Gemstones”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of jewellery and jewellery making.
