Deric has compiled a wealth of highly useful information for Metal Clay artisans! There are many stones in here that I did not know I could fire with Metal Clay, and several I thought I could, but are not recommended. I seriously suggest that anyone working with Metal Clay add his book to their library, and reference it before firing stones in place!

This compendium of information on gemstones and their use with metal clays is an extremely thorough and well-researched source of information for metal clayers. The book is organized beautifully and belongs in the library of every artist using metal clay.

I thought that this book would be useful in working with gems and PMC. However the only thing it tells you is how to burn up gemstones in the firing process -- this information is already available from many other sources and you would not need this book for it. If I could leave no stars I would. Don't waste your money.

The book is OK, but just barely. It covers the subject meagerly; could have been much more thorough. A real disappointment overall. I had no complaints about the seller or the transaction, just the book itself left a lot to be desired.

This book is a real find. The author has done extensive testing to determine which gemstones are safe for firing in place in metal clay. I am just getting started using gemstones in my metal clay designs and this book will save me a lot of headaches--not to mention the stones that won't get damaged by test firing. Easy to read and understand, and fairly comprehensive.
