I haven't made any jewelry from this book, but the instructions for each project are very clear, and the illustrations are beautiful. The projects are also beautiful and some are very different from the usual wireworking projects. I also like the way that the author shows additional ideas after each type of project. There are enough projects and ideas to make any jewelry maker happy.

I am just starting out in wirework and have found this book to be a wonderful source for my new passion! The pictures, the step by step instructions have proven to be invaluable to me. The beautiful patterns will serve as inspiration for a long time to come!
