    Lilia,
    You are correct about the Faberge books not containing much jewellery, I am a goldsmith not a jeweller so it is his objects that are of interest to me,if you ever get to see my book you will see 10 of my Easter eggs among other gold items. May I recommend you look at the book entitled The Jewellery of Rene Lalique and also if you can find one the Jewellery of George Fouquet. The only decent jewellery books that I have are the Hans Nadelhoffer book on Cartier and the Geoffrey Munn book on the jewellery of Castellani and Giuliano.

    Thank you very much for your suggestions, James. I will most certainly have a look at those books.

    Well, my first suggestion would most certainly be the same as Kwant's, "The Workbench Guide to Jewelry Techniques by Anastasia Young (Thames and Hudson)". A brilliant book I invested in last year, clear intructions and introduction to a huge variety techniques.

    I'm not sure if we're allowed the same suggestions?! So my other suggestion is The Jeweller's Directory of Shape and Form by Elizabeth Olver, a fairly new aquisition which I find instructional and inspiring, has helped bring techniques and ideas together and encouraged me to play and test much more!

    Great thread idea!

    Dennis, thanks for your reply.
    I am rather enjoying the forum at the moment, browsing through some of the topics can be very inspiring (but also time consuming - especially for a beginner). Regarding duplications, I will have to agree: unfortunately, I have found quite a few books to be explaining too much the use of tools and materials. I'm now looking into blogs on jewellery making as they at least offer rather unique perspectives.

    Kind regards
    Joe
