VICTORIAN jet worker’s tools as shown in Helen Muller’s book "Jet". I was
surprised to see how primitive some of the actual tools were, homemade and
well used. The artistry in the hand best carved jet jewelry is amazing.

For more information about JET and other Victorian
black jewelry we recommend the excellent book ‘Jet’ by Helen Muller.

Order a brand new black and white re-print of the original publication
of "JET" by Helen Muller with front cover in color. The first book
about jet jewelry and ornaments ever published, it covers the
history, geology and materials used to simulate jet

(vulcanite, bog oak, pressed horn, etc.)

as well as jet itself. There are 149 pages with
wonderful black and white illustrations.

This book and the newer edition are available on Amazon.
