Review

This is not a 'learn to hand-make jewellery' book (which takes years to learn), neither does it expect you to spend several thousand pounds setting up a high-tech. workshop. Instead, it treads a fascinating middle ground: tools you can make or adapt yourself; how to make badges, brooches, bangles, rings etc by the hundred; how to produce small components by the thousand. It is full of invaluable advice for those who want to make simple jewellery, whether to sell to friends or from a market stall or online.
