This month we’ve pulled together a range of business advice, techniques and traditional jeweller’s skills to make up our first professional issue, for those about to start out in business or already working as jewellers. There’s an A to Z of the popular gemstones as well as detailed projects for making stone settings – and Tansy Wilson goes through the commercial settings available if you don’t want to make your own. Other projects and techniques include Andrew Berry’s unusual Tentacle pendant, Jayne Rimington’s light and comfortable Hollow Form and Sian Hamilton’s Complete Beginner’s Guide to Soldering. We’re also excited to be featuring an article by Julia Rai explaining in depth what you need to consider when taking the step into teaching jewellery skills. And there are some real treats for you new businesses: Anna Campbell’s dos and don’ts of attending craft fairs, interview with online learning guru Alison Lee and knowledge from various jewellers about outsourcing parts of your work. So with all that plus all our regular features, you’ll find plenty to help your business thrive in the first professional issue of Making Jewellery, out now!
