- On my wish list from the moment I read it at the library Review by Judy
I found this book at my local library and checked it out on a whim as my metal working skills are in the beginning stages. WOW! The instructions were so clear and there were so many techniques that I felt I could start many of the projects even with my beginner-level metalworking skills. I am so excited that this book is now part of my jewelry library!

- Amazing Content! Review by Marnie
A lot of bang for your buck! The topic coverage is amazing the details and illustrations seal the deal. Everything from wire wrapped stones to PMC and Pave settings. Certainly you need a little background to use this book - it is not intended as step by step for a rank beginner it is however very well detailed step by step for anyone with even rudimentary grasp of techniques. Well worth the purchase price!

- A treasure Review by Kristin
This is a book I shall need as long as I keep working with metal and stones. Above all, I'd like to draw attention to the photographs, very clear and instructional. If you handle stones and/or pearls at all, you simply need this book.

- IN TOTAL AWE!!!! Review by Benjamin Pastrana
I MUST write my impressions about the Book "Gemstone Settings: The Jewelry Maker's Guide to Styles & Techniques", It's a piece of Art! Been time I hasn't read a so well designed book full of photographs and diagrams that takes away my fear to Stone Setting! Congratulations to Anastasia and the whole production team!!!! Would like to buy more books like that!

- A Must Have reference book Review by Helena Lekan
This book is both informative and inspirational. Techniques are described well in step by step instructions. It is a wonderful reference volume that includes gemstone setting instructions for various forms of metalsmithing, precious metal clay, pearls, and gemstone beads including stringing and wire wrapping. Every time I open up this book I discover something I had missed before.
