The new and " ultimate Goldsmiths Bible "

Do you know the book "The Theory & Practice of Goldsmithing by Prof. Dr. Erhard Brepohl?" In Germany people refer to this book as the the "Goldsmith's Bible" because it is the most comprehensive book about the profession and is therefore a "must have" for aspiring goldsmiths. With the iGoldsmith ( The Internet Goldsmith ) we show a similar approach but we have gone a few steps further to also show the necessary examples which are then explained in theory. We have included not only specific, singular skill information and technical, detailed measurements, but comprehensive explanations on how to master each skill element, and prepare, build, and complete each piece of jewellery.

This distance learning site ( with approximately 350 pages of written explanations and approximately500 images ) is written for creative people who want to learn specialized techniques in the jewellery field. More specifically, it is for those who seriously aspire to learn the skills of an ancient profession, and may therefore not be ideal for the "beading crowd". It is important to know that this web course does not offer a specific diploma or certificate, it is simply for your own experience and knowledge of working with precious material. Students may work in their own pace and without any time line or limit and will find ample amounts of tool or trade related resource information.

What do you get for the fees? Unlike with many other courses in jewellery or gemology, the Internet Goldsmith will show you the techniques needed to create YOUR unique jewellery. We do not explain how to make complicated pieces but our focus is that all users of this distance learning site may be able to do main and basic jewellery pieces that are difficult to fabricate but our focus is that all users of this distance learning site may be able to do main and basic jewellery pieces that will lead you to success in your unique style down the road.

Absorb the theory and learn the skills only for fun or share and sell your creations on the market place. The iGoldsmith will not prepare an individual for a position of emplyoment in the jewellery industry but with the skill set and unique approach to design to work for oneself in creating beautiful jewellery art.
