Review and giveaway: Color, Texture & Casting for Jewelers

cover of Color, Texture, & Casting for Jewelers by Carles Codina

I am so excited about this new book from Lark Jewelry & Beading! Color, Texture & Casting for Jewelers: Hands-On Demonstrations & Practical Applications is titillating with all the exciting things happening on the surface of these pieces. Inside this gem of a book you’ll find bold color, tactile surfaces, and unique fabrications along with clear instructions for how to recreate the techniques. This two-part book by Carles Codina first covers color, texture, and finishes. Modeling and casting round out the second half. With instruction and beautiful photography to guide you, this book will acquaint you with ancient techniques such as keum boo, mokume gane, granulation, and plating. Although the techniques have been in use since ancient times, the pieces featured in this book are anything but old-fashioned. The contemporary design juxtaposed with these ancient techniques is truly spectacular.
