Currently I am re-learning jewelry/metalsmithing as I have been away
from it for 25yrs. Checking out books from the library is helping me
decide which one are worth purchasing and helping me start from
Recently I am checked out a book “Jewelry Design, The Artisans
Reference”, by Elizabeth Olver, when I checked on line to buy this
great book, I see it is out of print and those that have it for sale
want $150 for it! Also found a book by the same author titled “The
Jeweller’s Directory of Shape and Form” in paperback. The cover is
identical. Does any one know if it is the same book? The library does
not have it, any help any one can offer would be great.
Also, I was wondering if any one had any suggestions on what and
where to purchase my “starter kit”. Lots of out there
and a little overwhelming, I live in Michigan and will be taking a
workshop next month. The instructor only suggested Rio Grande, but
thought there might be places closer so shipping would be less.
Thank you for any help any one offers, it will be greatly
