Midwest Book Review
Creating Wooden Jewelry is especially and specifically for those woodworkers who want to extend their practice to jewelry, as well as those who want to learn woodworking skills, but find furniture too intimidating or too large, and want an alternative to smaller projects like bowls and boxes.
P
Publishers Weekly
The author makes an appeal for "designer-makers," as she calls her potential readers, to consider using discarded, offcut, and found wood in their creations. A jewelry artist whose work has been sold at Barneys, Liberty London, and elsewhere, King leads readers through her process, her inspirations, and 20 projects--including ebony rings, oak necklaces, and walnut pendants--all meant to help them build skills as they go.

Those with an interest in jewelry making--particularly on the artisanship level--will appreciate its projects and insights into the medium of wood.
