Highly Recommended - this has something for everyone!
I am fairly new to metal smithing and was somewhat doubtful about my ability to actually create anything like the picture on the cover. The author has a terrific ability to break a design down to the basic elements and then shows step-by-step how to recreate it in metal. It isn't nearly as difficult as it looks! After studying the methods she teaches it is fairly easy to think your way through virtually any metal flower design you would want to create and know how to create it for yourself. The starting designs are easy and once you master them your creativity sizzles to life with ideas you know you can actually make!

I am not a metal worker, so I was cautiously optimistic about this book since it included beads....lol! Not only does the book cover metals, alone and in conjunction with beads, but also leather and other fibers. It discusses and demonstrates the cutting of metal, bringing out the beautiful colors of copper and also it's use in jewelry design. And she makes it look so easy that I'm inspired to try it myself.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
