    Need more information!

    Attractive jewelry projects, which are good for inspiration. However, the author falls short of providing information that makes several of the projects doable. She assumes that her readers will know what several components are, how to use them and where to find them. Examples are paper clay, shrink plastic and a "resin kit." The book would be much improved with more information. I am a good self-educator/do-it-yourselfer, but I found several of her projects to be insufficiently explained and therefore not doable. I can't recommend this book as it is currently written.
