Learn How To Make Jewellery | A List Of Educational Books

2 minute read

Are you interested in learning how to make jewellery but maybe don't have the budget to pay for classes? 

As a self taught jewellery designer myself, I thought I'd put together a little post showing you the books that helped me learn right at the very beginning, and continue to help me still to this day. 

That's the great thing about owning books, you can always refer back to them down the line.

Depending on what kind of jewellery you are interested in learning, there is a different book. My selection covers anything from beading for beginners to silversmithing.

So let's get into it.

First up

This book is great to learn the techniques into beading and will show you how to make a vast amount of different items from necklaces to bracelets but also brooches and dream catchers too!
