    Default Foldforming book

    Charles Lewton-Brain's book on Foldforming is not available from Cooksons or Amazon UK or Play.com yet it is the best book on this subject that I have seen and is written by the inventor of the technique. Although I have now ordered a copy, it is the sort of book that I would expect Cooksons to sell so that we in the UK would not have to order it from the US.

    Hi Elaine,

    Thank you for your suggestion, I will pass it onto the product team, I must agree it is a great book.

    Maybe in the near future we will be able to stock it, but I will definitely look into it.

    In the same vein, the Ganoksin books might be worthwhile - the last time I checked, they were only available from the US.

    Anastasia Young, Workbench Guide To Jewellery Techniques, has a section on fold forming, which is enough to start you off. Dennis.

    Anastasia Young, Workbench Guide To Jewellery Techniques, has a section on fold forming, which is enough to start you off. You need a hammer, a vice or a rolling mill, plenty of thin copper sheet and hours of experimentation, Dennis.

    Hi Dennis, Yes, I already have the Anastasia Young book. Three pages just isn't enough No rolling mill yet - will have to save for one - but the hammers have been getting a workout.

    Hi Elaine,
    I've been after that book for ages too and am a huge admirer of foldforming. There are some good youtube tutes to keep you and I interested till the book arrives.

    There are a few tutes on the Ganoskin website too http://www.ganoksin.com/borisat/dire...y/subject/52/1

    Hi Jules,

    Wellhead Books had the book at a very reasonable price (if I'm allowed to say that) so I've had it for a few days now and have been happily hammering away.
    My best item so far is a bangle hammered on the open edge - it is so light to wear - although I've also done an interesting spiral pendant and a line fold necklace.

    Thanks for the recommendation Elaine, I've just ordered it.
