    Excellent Handbook

    I am positively smitten with Mr. Holschuhs' book "The Jeweler's Studio Handbook".
    As a novice jewelry artist, with an infatuation for any book/magazine on the "How To's" of jewelry making, I've managed to accumulate 30+ books over the last few years. Mr Holschuhs' book has become one of my favorites...come to think of it- it's in my top 3 "Must Have" books. Mr Holschuh has an edgy style I can relate to. The first part of the book covers the studio, tools, and techniques. The explanation of techniques are clear and concise. The step by step photos are worth a thousand words. I especially like the "Tips" added to some of the techniques. The last part of the book has over 12 different projects to try and by altering the materials, you can incorporate the techniques to suit the style of jewelry that appeals to you.
    Move over Mr. McCreight-Mr Holschuh has written a valuable handbook for jewelry artists everywhere.

    Jewelry making guide

    I love Brandon Holschuhs way of outlining this book. I gives great ideas for setting up a studio, tools & equipment to purchase, and fun ideas for creating unique artistic jewelry. He gives easy to understand information and sparks a creative energy in a new jeweler.

    Inspiring and Fun to use

    I have really enjoyed the ideas I have gotten by browsing this book. I am always on the lookout for books that give practical instructions for projects that look more difficult than they are. This books gives great instruction for the beginner to intermediate metalsmith. I found the instruction sound and easy to follow. Lots of ideas.
