    Great book for the beginning jeweler.

    I just started creating beaded jewelry in Jan. 2009 and needed some instructon. Not finding anyone in my area to teach me I decided to purchase some books and "teach myself". This book covers many basic ideas and has pictures and instructions on creating projects. It covers different types of beads, wire, findings, and instruments needed to create designer jewelry. Plus it contains jewelers tips and design advice. I've purchased other books for the same price and this is by far the best book for the dollar.

    80 year old mom loves jewelry book

    My Mom is 80 years old and a jewelry creator...she creates jewelry from the finest beads to ones crafted from paper...a real artist. She truly enjoyed looking through Making Designer Jewelry and has produced some very nice sets. It was full of many ways jewelry could be designed to look expensive and unique.

    Very Good Introduction to jewelry making

    This book has opened up a whole new world for me. I've made a few pieces and am learning. It's a well done book.

    great intro book to get started beading.

    great fun - enough info to get started creating bracelets, necklaces and earings. a little about stringing, a little about wire shapes, some design info. great examples to make. Once you have created a few of the examples, you can branch off into your own pieces.
