This book, by author Christine Dhein is a resource for jewelers who are concerned about having a safe workplace where jewelry can be created in an eco-friendly way. Written specifically for small studios and school environments, the book is laid out in a summary format, looking at different chemicals and processes that are part of the jewelry-making environment, and the ecological impact of each one. Information and comparisons are shared to assist jewelers in making better choices when selecting potentially dangerous materials that are needed for their particular craft. Ms. Dhein encourages both awareness of materials used, and the use of common sense for a healthier, safer jewelry-making studio.
