I have had this book for almost a year now. It is a constant companion. It is full of information on an array of jewelry making subjects. I would recommend this to anyone who is serious about jewelry making.
I liked it because it explains simple things simply. Easy to understand. I keep it onhand when I teach beading classes.
Lots of details for beginners and the more advanced alike. Just about any basic (and many advanced!) questions you may have about the glorious world we bead in. Lots of chapters in all aspects of the jewelry making business...from how to have home shows to selling at a craft show and what to price your treasures at. Also plenty of designs with easy to follow instructions. If you're just beginning making jewelry I envy you getting this book early on. Covers all tools and all other jewelry making materials. Another great "Dummies" book!
