I got this book at our local bead store, Brea Bead Works and, wow, what a great book. A recommended tools section and descriptions of techniques at the beginning of the book. I’ve tried lots of different things in jewelry-making, but my knowledge of the terminology is far from complete.
The pictures are great and the explanations and instructions are very clear. I got three new techniques and ideas for things to do with them when I thumbed through iit at the store. Books are one of my major weaknesses and I often feel guilty buying more, but this is one purchase I’m not going to regret.
