And there it was all the time!!! That url is now in my bookmarks!! Thank you! Thank you!!

    This website has tons of links to other jewellers, guilds etc. Haven't looked through them all yet, but so far very few, if any dead links. Sorry if it covers things already covered but there's loads...

    Thumbs up Keep resurrecting this thread for useful resources!!

    I think this thread for 'good websites, inspiration, knowledge etc.' deserves a resurrection occasionally as it has a lot of interesting links that new forum folk might miss out on...


    AND
    ps_bond put this link in his list of 'what is on his (jewellery) bookshelf' and I think it deserves to get anothering airing!! It takes a bit of searching - I have put in obvious terms like 'jewelry design' (mainly American books hence spelling) - and have found some fascinating old books that you can view on line..without the musty smell!... art nouveau designs described as modern...quaint!! Anyway - the link could be worth putting in your bookmarks for future reference. Thanks ps_bond!!

    Anyone got $8,000 down the back of the sofa they can lend me??!!

    I think this is when it 'pays' to have a 'pedigree' as shown in each artist's bio on that website
