Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Books aimed at beginners have to strike a delicate balance of presenting enough information to be useful and instructive, but not so much that the reader is overwhelmed. Jan Loney strikes that balance through her approachable style, organized chapters, and attractive jewelry projects. She covers the basics when it comes to tools, supplies, techniques, and studio safety. Every project is broken down into manageable steps and includes plenty of generously sized how-to photos." -- Art Jewelry magazine
