Reviews: Jewelry Illustration

Art Jewelry Magazine

Jewelry illustration is key in communicating your ideas -- to clients or to your future self. Until a jewelry illustration course in college opened my eyes, I was sure that was strictly a 3-D artist. Reading this book felt like sitting in that class. It covers every aspect of jewelry illustration: rendering 3-D forms, shading, and showcasing designs from any angle. Having taught at the School of Jewelry in Quebec City since 1987, Audette knows her subject matter and how to teach it; she starts with basics, building your skills with over 1,000 of her own step-by-step illustrations. Even if you don't frequently draw your jewelry, this is a timeless reference.
