Review quote

One of the best books of its kind that I've seen in a long while ... A practical and informative book that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Craftsman Craft & Design This is a nicely worked guide that should give you the confidence to start your own business without making many of the easily-made and elementary errors that bedevil the inexperienced. At GBP12.99 it's excellent value, will probably pay for itself in the first few minutes, and could be your first business expense. Art Book Review This small book delivers an encapsulated 'how to' manual on almost everything you need to get your business going. Further, it provides a handy touch stone for all but the most experience jewellery business owner ... by spending a little time at the beginning absorbing the book and adhering to some of the administration guidelines you will in the long run save hours that you can then dedicate to your jewellery. Findings: The Magazine of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery
