No more questions on stone setting

With the clear photos and step by step instructions, there are no more questions left on stone setting. Fabulous book to learn how to set any kind of stone correctly.

Great step by step, even for beginners

I have several of Alan Revere's books and they are all great. This book takes you from the very beginning, starting with the tools you will need, where to get them or how to make them yourself and shows you the basic techniques for setting different types of stones in different types of pieces. The pictures do a great job showing the techniques and the descriptions are very precise, explaining how to perform each step and why.

Best Stone Setting resource a MUST have !

I truly love this book. Alan made it easy for anyone to follow step by step process for different stone setting techniques. The photos at each step of the process are priceless. Especially for visual learners like myself photos give extra confidence that the step was done right. There are various difficulty projects throughout the book and each one of them is described with detail and photos. I personally like the cluster setting and 6 prong setting one. Alan also shows photos of proper tool and hand placement and talks about gravers, their sharpening and best techniques. Much recommended!

Understanding process is the key to success.

This book is an excellent resource for any level of practitioner from recreational maker to professional jeweler. The sections on general procedure and tools should be required reading for anyone who intends to sit at a bench and set stones. Each of the 26 setting projects in this book are clearly presented with precise illustrations and close up photographs. The steps of each setting are well described, clearly explained and concise in detail. The instruction is equally approachable for the novice jewelry maker as well as the experienced setter. Understanding process is the key to success. This book will enable any reader to develop skill, build confidence and become proficient at these exacting tasks. I highly recommend it!
