I recommend this book for beaders who have some beading experience. It is also helpful to have some wireworking experience and familiarity with the tools involved. Lack of experience would not prevent someone with a great interest from learning from this book, but the experience would give you some perspective. The author explains various metal techniques in sufficient detail and the photographs support the material. Project photos are bright, colorful and inspiring. I had been looking for a book like this and I am very pleased with it.
