When I shop for jewelry-making books, I always look for elements-to-adapt and useful tips-and-tricks. And, these books by Melinda Barta (editor of Beadwork Magazine) has a lot of things for me to incorporate into my new designs.
I rarely see jewelry-making books that are filled with projects I’d like to re-create.
In many cases, the materials to re-create those projects are rather on the expensive side and/or unavailable for purchase. Besides, most of the time, the designs of those pieces do not suit my style.
But . . .
Nobody says we need to re-create those pieces in order to learn some new techniques.
That’s why it’s important for to find books that explain the techniques in detail.
As usual, I prefer to buy the e-book edition of the jewelry-making books because:
- I can have all of those books in one place – in my Kindle Fire – and so, I can access the information I need much quicker (the search-inside-the-book function really helps)
- Whenever necessary, I can zoom in to get a better look at complicated-looking diagrams.
- And these obvious advantages:
- Less clutter
- Lower price
- Quicker “delivery”
- And, the books will always stay tidy
