    This is a MUST HAVE book for anyone who makes jewelry- from begi

    This is a MUST HAVE book for anyone who makes jewelry- from beginner to advanced. Kim .  I selected this book because it has a little bit on just about everything (don't think you will only learn part of a technique though) and Kim presents it in an easy to understand manner and the pictorials are terrific. I started wire wrapping about 2 years ago and loved it.. I made my first patterned wire bracelet and it sold immediately    To my surprise and delight. I went to look for more patterned wire and found the selection lacking...so I learned how to make it myself by etching directly to metal or etching a heavy gauge brass sheet and running through my rolling mill. Next came soldering, cold connections, then different ways to patina my pieces. I love the whole process that goes into every piece of jewelry I make ad those done by my talented friends. I started this book at an intermediate level for most methods (enameling, rivets etc.) but after following her instructions and putting my own spin on the tutorials - I know my  skills have  improved and my confidence level has allowed me to just "go with it" and see what happens in the end. I'm sure ill forget a steps here and there - but I know I've learned enough that i wont have anther bezel become liquid  unless I want it too! Thanks Kim, for the great book and I hope too see another soon. 
    Nan
