    THIS IS A MUST-HAVE!

    This book is beautiful and full of great projects for every level. The photographs are wonderful and the instructions are thorough and easy to understand. Don't miss out on this book by the editor of Step by Step Wire Jewelry. She's really a pro!

    Good projects

    Some instructions could offer more detail. Some projects are repetative - too similar to other projets

    Pretty pictures but...

    The photos in this book are gorgeous and there is a variety of different jewelry that can be made. However, all the instructions for the different techniques are at the beginning of the book, so when you get to a project you like, you are constantly flipping back and forth to see the technique.

    The book would have been so much better if there were photos of the steps to create each of the pieces. Since there isn't, I don't recommend this book, except to look at the photos.
