    Default A good read and the enviroment

    At the end of last year i decided to start reading all the jewellery books i had collected, from beginning to end. Personally i prefer the technique/technical books to the make this bracelet/necklace, etc as i don't have time to make other peoples designs; though maybe I would learn something if i did.
    I've just finished reading the workbench guide to jewellery techniques (even the boring bits) which gives you an overview of most ways you can make a piece of jewellery (i now understand, when i look at other peoples work, that it is cast, or chiselled, or molded etc) and i've now bought myself Sustainable Jewellery to read (the enviroment being something all of us should be aware of even if we're only hobbiests. A little bit of effort here and there from everyone adds up). Personally at this moment i want to be dispossing of chemicals responsibly, not buying dodgy gemstones and not wasting my materials. If i can do any more than that it'll be a bonus.

    Hi Sheen, that's a great idea. Whilst I have read some of my books cover to cover I do also have a tendency to skip the "boring" bits or the beginning sections on tools for fear of repetition. I think you're right that there's may be hidden gems in those areas so am going to start doing the same

    Sometimes i find the 'boring bits' have some hidden gems in them. Great for a jeweller hee, hee.
