The world of jewelry finishing is filled with a variety of tools and other components. Jewelry Finishing is a handy reference guide that brings together all the information needed to take jewelry components and fashion them into finished pieces.
After realizing there was no one source available to meet the needs of her students, author Jill Niles researched the latest in jewelry components and compiled the results in this easy-to-follow resource book. With clear, step-by-step instructions and beautifully illustrated diagrams of the different jewelry components, Jewelry Finishing gives readers the knowledge they need to buy materials without wasting money on the wrong tools or on supplies they won't use.
Jewelry Finishing is a resource that empowers jewelry artists to navigate the vast world of bead shops and craft stores-something that can be daunting to the novice jewelry maker.
