A new book is out and I really like this one. Marlene Blessing and Jamie Hogsett wrote and designed the project for Stones.
I have to say the best part of the book for me is the section on types of semi-precious stones. There are photos of the different types of stones and descriptions. I really need something like this, because I have to admit I don't know my stone types very well. Even though I don't know my semi precious stone names I do like to design with them. This book gives some great ideas as well as some really nice color combination ideas. To be exact there are 23 projects, a stones glossary, a techniques section, and resources, so you just can't go wrong with this book.
Congratulations Jamie and Marlene!
