Excerpt from Jewelry Making and Design: An Illustrated Text Book for Teachers, Students of Design, and Craft Workers in Jewelry

An abundance of illustrated material will be found, consisting of drawings, designs and photographs of finished work, executed by students of all ages, including the High School, the Art School and the Professional Craftsman.

The various materials and processes involved are described in detail, and the necessary equipment for individual or for school use is outlined and illustrated.

The numerous designs in the book are shown with the idea of leading the student to think and design for himself and not to copy. Deliberate copying checks the student's development and stunts his individuality.

The chapter on Hub and Die Cutting is in cluded in this book to show the modern method of producing a piece of jewelry by machine, that the reader may understand the process, and not that he will attempt the cutting of a hub or die without some experience in steel work. It is hoped that this volume will be found especially helpful to students of jewelry, craftsmen and teachers who are applying design to various materials.

The author's thanks are due the following persons who have assisted in the successful completion of the book.

To Josephine Beane Rose, for untiring assistance in correcting the text and reading the proof.
