About the Author:

Judith Crowe is a jewellery maker and gemstone dealer. Because she entered the trade as a designer and jewellery maker, rather than as a gemmologist, she has a different perspective to other dealers. She understands the process of jewellery design and is always looking for new ways of using stones rather than sticking with the traditional.

Review:

"...This is the first book to deal comprehensively with all the considerations that need to be taken into account when using gem materials in jewellery." Association for COntemporary Jewellery (March 2007)
