[Book] In praise of 'Masters: Gemstones'

I love picture books about jewelry/ decorative arts as much as I
love tools. I find wonderful books in the Edward Hamilton catalog
often at substantial discounts. I spend my breakfasts and lunches
eating and looking at books. Don’t read the texts much, you know,
visual mind. Although the text of this one was interesting and
sucked me in to some degree.

Alan Revere’s new book, published by Lark Books is such a treat! I
can’t think of another book so crammed full of simply gorgeous
jewelry. It is both encouraging and discouraging. It pushes me to be
more creative, but shows me technique that is far out of my limited
reach. I can only respond by rededicating myself. So many fine
jewelers, so many neat ideas.

I understand that this is the first of a series. I look forward to
the rest.
