Gemstone Settings is the most in-depth, technical guide to stone setting. Jewelry makers will enjoy an encyclopedic overview, which features an extensive summary of stone-setting and techniques for creating beautiful gemstone jewelry, from basic bezels and prongs to pave, carre, clusters, and numerous others--including cold joins, precious metal clay, settings for fragile stones, and settings that allow the stones to move.

You'll also discover detailed information about stones and metals--including their suitability, gorgeous photos and illustrations for visual support, what makes a design wearable and durable, and detailed information on pre-made versus handmade settings.

Step by step, learn how to set your most beloved precious, semiprecious, and organic stones with projects that range from elegant diamond masterpieces to earthy pearl or coral everyday favorites.

Review:

"If there ever was a book subtly designed to seduce readers into a jewelry-making career, British artist Young's is it. And if slipcased with her first book, The Workbench Guide to Jewelry Techniques (2010), it would be half of an excellent map to the workings and how-to's of the business...Sparkling, and with substance." - Barbara Jacobs, Booklist

"I was very surprised at the amount of information covered for the size of the book. It really is packed with information! And there are all kinds of gorgeous jewelry pieces shown through, whether as examples of the projects in the book or as inspirational pieces or variations on techniques used." - Tammy Powley, About.com Guide to Jewelry Making

"If you're a gem geek like me, or if you just appreciate the interest and pretty pops of color and/or texture that gemstones can add to your jewelry designs, you'll enjoy Anastasia Young's new book, Gemstone Settings." - Tammy Jones, editor, JewelryMakingDaily.com

"A great how-to guide for adding a variety of stones to your jewelry work - in everything from metal clay, traditional metals, resin, and even mixed media jewelry creations." - Stacie Hooder, CraftGossip.com

"Looking for some new ways to use gemstones in your jewelry-making projects? Check out the new book Gemstone Settings: The Jewelry Maker's Guide to Styles and Techniques. You'll find information about how to use your favorite gemstones (and a few new ones!) in beautiful, architectural metal jewelry designs. Learn how to set gemstones in prong settings, bezel settings and grain settings, and with so many valuable references about popular gemstones, step-by-step instructions for making your own gemstone settings and basic fabrication techniques, this is one jewelry making book that you'll refer to time and again." – Beading Dailey

"Experienced jewelry makers will consider this a useful reference to creating jewelry with precious and semiprecious stones." – Library Journal
