Editorial Reviews

"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
