I am displeased with this magazine because it is not helpful to me as far as making jewelry. It's more like a catalog or history of art pieces. I'm very disappointed.
This magazine contains a variety of ideas for jewelry making inspiration

I like all the techniques discussed since I am new to metal working.
I especially like the articles that explain how to use certain tools correctly.
I like it!

Wasn't so sure I would, but this magazine presents timely information about jewelry issues an events, and showcases nice work. I bought this magazine during a "sale" event, so I would say it was definitely worth every penny. I enjoy seeing it show up in my mailbox.
Very informative jewellry magazine.

Art Jewellry magazine is filled with information, examples, artist, great pictures of pieces. There are various jewellry making magazines and Art Jewellry and one other are the only two that I find worth subscribing to. Magazine line had the best price for a subscription!
Lapidary Journal has a New Name and Updated Content

I am a goldsmith and lapidary among other titles, and businesses. Lapidary Journal has been a long-time favorite of mine for many years. The New style and articles are more geared to the trends in art jewelry making than Lapidary arts but where there is readership there is money, and advertising. The editor of lapidary Journal is truly a journalist as compared to other art jewelry genre magazines. The editor of Art Jewelry Magazine, a Kalmbach publication is more an advertising dollar hound than rock hound- which is what lapidary journal originally aspired to attract in their membership subscription roles. For that reason Merle White has more ethical and contextual grasp of what a magazine of this ilk should contain and sees to it that the cutrrent articles target the current population of subscribers - art jewelrs and lapidary that are interested in advancing or refining or in some cases sharnig theior knowledge of both with the magazine's readership. The new format has met with mixed reviews from "old timers" and rockhounds that decry the content as being more attractive to srt jewelrs than lapidary..I must admit the articles are balanced and then again, with very little advancement in techniques and processes in either genre, Jewelry Artist maximizes the most current information in each field with aits updated format that is easier to read and articles that are easier to follow, particularly for novices in both concentrations. If I could afford only one art jewelry magazine not attached to an organizational membership ( like MEtalsmith for instance) ,Jewelry Artist would be , by far the magazine of choice. Ethically, for readability, information and stylistically- it is hands down superior to Art Jewelry Magazine, of which the editor seems more interested in reading cookbooks than producing a magazine that seems solely advertising driven.
