The good: This book has absolutely drop dead gorgeous illustrations of fine jewelry created using precious metals and precious stones.

The bad: The book is targeted primarily to those who have excellent drafting or drawing skills, with very little to no instruction provided in developing the skills needed to execute the concepts in the book.

The "artistic values" are presented as matter of fact axioms, with no support or explanation. In other words, this is not a "how to do it" book at all. It's a lovely presentation of jewelry design illustration, but there is no teaching here, and no hints on how the illustrations might be actually rendered in metal and stone.

Nice "idea book" for manufacturing fine jewelers who render metal from drawings, but of little to no value for small scale artist jewelers with no drawing skills who render pieces via improvisitory skills and spontaneous arrangement of physical objects.

I love this book and it's companion Designing Jewelry. They are both beautiful books. I am a professional gold and platinum smith with a fine arts as well as a technical background. I mostly use this book to reference how to render colored faceted gemstones. I already had a background in drafting and metal smithing so it was a perfect fit for me.
For those reviewers who didn't get enough info on basic jewelry rendering skills I would recommend the book Jewelry Illustration by Dominique Audette. Also available on Amazon.

Otherworldly illustrations are such convincing illusions that you will think, how can these be paintings and not photographs? Painted they are, with unbelievable skill as well as stunning design innovation. Some sections of the book feature finished illustrations with accompanying text that explain and DEPICT step by step exactly how the image was built (e.g., pencil outline, shading with the pencil and where to shade, application of which of the 6 colors in the gold or platinum palettes to paint next, and exactly where, and so on, etc.). This is invaluable and so concrete and explicit as to nearly equal a teacher sitting next to you and guiding you. (Well, not THAT helpful, but sorta.)

Not very helpful in learning to draw/render jewelry. The renderings are very nice and enviable, but I didn't intend to buy a coffee table book of enviable illustrations - I wanted to learn to do it myself!

Familiarity (perhaps even mastery) of required materials and techniques is assumed throughout. What metal artist has such a refined skillset of painting just 'lying around'? If that were the intended audience, the techniques needed to render metals and gems as a specialty would STILL be under-explained. Absurd. Perhaps some MFA types can comment on this idea more intelligently. I'm at a loss.

I thought I could at least collect the colors chosen to render metals, but I'm not able to find half of the paints listed on p.12 - not even from the manufacturer (Winsor & Newton). Perhaps I'll write to the publishers and/or Winsor & Newton for advice on finding these colors or appropriate substitutes and share the results here. Still, that won't make me satisfied with my purchase - just trying to get _something_ to show for it.

This book doesn't explain how to paint with gouache or how to render 3D objects in perspective--if you're looking for that, you want this book: [...]. However if you are a designer looking for some great references for classic jewelry designs and a general idea of how to take a design from rough to finished rendering, this is a great book for that. Jewelry rendering is a dying skill and this book is a great example of why it should still be taught!

It's a beautiful book but if you really want to learn to draw jewelry do not get this book unless you are an artist and can draw pretty much whatever you see.
