I am quite impressed with the special issue magazine from our friends at Art Jewelry Magazine titled New Essential Techniques: Making Metal Jewelry. It is a quality fundamental resource that reads more like a book than a magazine. It is an absolute gem, full of technique, tips and sound step-by-step projects that will help build your skills in metal fabrication.
I do have a project in this issue and would be sharing it with my friends anyway, but what really impressed me was the format of this particular issue. There are wonderful, numerous and varried contributions from top designers and educators in the field and the editors put all of these these pieces together in a cohesive and progressive, easy to follow format. They have thought of everything with this one, tool essentials, projects, photos, tips, sidebars, special galleries and much more. It's really an amazing reference, a great value and because it's a magazine it's only around for a short time. Don't miss your chance to get your hands on one.
We carry them in the studio but have sold out. I hope to get more in before they are gone completely.
