If you're looking for a book to show you how to make that million dollar necklace to wear with your ballgown, this isn't it -- Keep looking. However, this book does have an interesting and creative selection of projects including link necklaces, rings, and earrings for everyday wear. Many of these projects include a "variation" to give you additional ideas. If you're looking to get into making wire jewelry this is a good place to start. Book includes a section for basic techniques at the end.
