I never get tired of reading Art Jewelry Magazine.
This jewelry making magazine covers a real variety of techniques from beginner metalsmithing techniques to working with wire, polymer clay, metal clay and plenty of other jewelry media.
You'll find plenty of inspiration from the beautiful and innovative jewelry projects and artists featured in each issue of Art Jewelry.
In addition to finding inspiration from featured artists, you will also find plenty of health and safety tips for jewelry artists, information on tools and products that are useful for jewelry designers and projects you can make yourself.
The directions for projects are clearly written and easy to follow, and the photos are gorgeous.
Some metalsmithing purists, have expressed disappointment that this magazine has moved away from a metalsmithing focus to include other jewelry making techniques, and this change has caused a bit of controversy for long-time readers of this magazine.
Some people love the new focus and the inclusion of a range of media and techniques, while others would prefer to see the magazine return to a focus on metalsmithing.
I personally love to experiment with new techniques, so I enjoy the broader focus. You never know what intriguing projects you'll find in Art Jewelry
