Troubleshooting for Jewelers by Frieda Munro

I am very new to jewelry making, well actual creating of the entire thing. I can easily place beads on a rope or stretchy string and have it done easily, but when it comes to creating from metal, designing the pieces and repairing I have not a clue. However, I found the book, Troubleshooting for Jewelers by Frieda Munro to fill me in for the problems that occur with jewelry and how I can easily fix them with the right tools. This could even work for those pieces I own and have to repair or anyone of my friends and family member's pieces. 

The guidance is simple, what you are in need of repair and how to fix it. Very simple and also some excellent photos of certain techniques to create different pieces of jewelry perfectly and prevent any problem that may occur when using tools or just what is common when working with the material. The images give you an example of the shape and tools used, while the text can help you understand exactly what needs to happen and what can be done if any error has occurred.

I really think this is an excellent book for Jewelers! It's not really for beginners, but if you take the time to understand jewelry making and maybe want to understand how you can create pieces, well you might actually enjoy this book. It could be a helpful guide for repairing and correctly designing a piece of jewelry all by yourself!
