Item Description...
Choosing the right findings and finishing techniques can transform an ordinary piece of jewelry from simple to stunning. This guide describes how to use purchased findings, provides techniques for creating unique ones, and shares innovative ways to finish necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and pins. Each finding and finishing technique—whether it's a description of a barrel clasp, instructions on making your own beaded clasp, or methods for attaching a pin back—is presented in detail with colorful illustrations and photographs. Projects are integrated throughout the book to illustrate the techniques presented.

Findings and Finishing--Great Book for Beginners  Aug 20, 2008
This book is an absolute must for beginners or advanced jewelry designers. The great step-by-step pictures provide an excellent reference. Terms are clearly defined.
I use this book a lot.  Jul 9, 2008
For all the people who want instructions on finishing jewelry, this is a wonderful resource book. It's well written and gorgeously printed in color.
It's a nice overview of finishing techniques, including some absolutely inspirational clasps done in seed beads, she has wire tips and instructions for wire clasps, detailed hints and instructions for finishings.
It's got nice ideas for beginners, and for wireworkers both beginning and experienced. Bails and earrings and multi strand clasps that are well thought out.
It's also a great book for advanced beaders as well, there are some projects and ideas in it that are just really inspirational. I'm absolutely in love with some of the seed bead clasp ideas, they are elegant and gorgeously executed, and I know I'll be using them in the near future. There is a slide bar bracelet that's so clever it took my breath away. I can picture it so well with a rug pattern peyote stitched bracelet!
I was very impressed. In some ways, learning how to end a piece of jewelry you've spent a lot of time on in a way that balances well and is as beautiful as the rest of the piece is very hard, this book makes it much easier to have the back of your necklace or bracelet look as amazing at the front does. A lot of the ideas are also a lot less expensive then buying fancy findings that only "almost" match your finished piece. With this in hand, you can design the perfect finish for your piece.
It was released by Interweave Press, the company that does Beadwork magazine. This book easily meets all expectations. I've been using it as a reference since I got it.
How to Bead Book  Apr 18, 2008
I thought this book would just be about findings but it has everything you need to know to polish and finish any bead work. A must have for any beader.
Needs more illustrations  Jan 29, 2008
Although "Findings and Finishings" is described on its cover as "a beadwork how-to book", it is as much a catalogue of the different findings and finishings that are available, as it is an instructional manual. In this book, Sharon Bateman provides color photographs of just about every type of jewellery finding imaginable (including clasps, connectors, terminals, spacers, crimps, head pins, ear wires and pins), with instructions on their use, and photographs and instructions of a wide range of beading techniques. There are no specific projects described in this book, but there is enough information given for the reader to create their own projects.

Although this book is only 118 pages, there is a lot of information given in that space, and I would imagine this information would appeal to jewellery makers of all skill levels. However, this book could have been improved if more illustrations were provided of the interim steps involved in attaching each of the findings etc. Bateman provides photographs of finished products but often provides no illustrations of how she got there. This caused me some problems when I was learning how to bead.
Awesome book  Oct 26, 2007
I love this book because it actually gives detailed instructions as to how to do things that many articles and books just touch on or assume you know. It also has many creative ways to embellish and finish your jewelry with findings you make yourself. The only complaint I've had with the book is that I wish it had more detailed descriptions or more pictures showing the process for some of the projects. However, I tend to have trouble following along with directions for weaving projects anyway!
