Great book for beginners and intermediates alike. Each chapter builds on the previous ones, so in effect this book reads like a course in wirework. The projects are gorgeous and utterly wearable, there isn't one piece in here that I would not wear. A neat concept in this book are the life-sized templates provided with many projects. You can place your work-in-progress over the templates to see if you are headed in the right direction.
I won this book in a book exchange and haven't been able to put it down. Written in a way that I was able to easily follow the directions and complete at least one project with inspiration from this book. The only thing that's lacking is step by step photos to follow the instructions (for us more visual learners), but worth taking a look even though it may look too simple of a book. Great reference to have for wire work.
I looked everywhere for this book. It was great to know that I could not only depend on Barnes & Noble to locate it but get it but to also have it delivered in a timely manner was a plus.
