Book Buying Spree

I had a number of Chapters gift cards, which means – shopping spree! Among the books I bought were two new jewellery books that I’m excited to get into.

The first is a book of Art Deco designs and that is exactly what it is – there is nothing else in the book but drawings of different designs. It’s a great resource to flip through when I’m looking for ideas (like the Art Nouveau book is as well!).
The second is a Directory of Gemstones, which is a brilliant reference book. It has information about the composition of stones, different names for gemstones, types of cuts and settings, and so on … I find it fascinating, but it’s also great if you are looking to buy jewellery as well. I’m also planning on using it to provide more information about the semi-precious stones I use.
