good ideas May 16, 2008
Great ideas, i have created alot of my own ideas after working with this book. Good instruction- wearable art!
EXCELLENT book that is worth having if you LOVE wireworking! May 4, 2008
I am relatively new to wireworking and found this book to have both simple and more complex ideas, so there is something for everyone. I found some great new things to try and the instructions were clear and easy to follow. It also sparked my own creativity to try some variations once I saw how it was done. DEFINITELY a great book for beginners and more experienced designers alike.
Don't buy Feb 17, 2008
Book is becoming unglued, and I just started reading it. Never had this happen before.
Instructions for necklace on cover, aren't there.
Some of the instructions for closures, might not work.
I have a lot of jewelry making books and I DON'T recommend this one!
Gorgeous Jan 23, 2008
I have always loved celtic design and after buying this book I realized I would be able to easily create jewelry designs to fit that style. I love the photographs, as they are well done and easy to view many aspects of each design. Instructions are easy and simple to follow no matter what level of jewelry designer you are. I am by no means an advanced jewelry maker and designer, so I found this book very helpful and extremely inspirational.
A genuine delight! Dec 21, 2007
I first encountered this book through a friend, and at that time made one of the braided wire bracelets. I was taken at once! The directions are clear, the photographs are not only informative, but also quite beautiful works of art in and of themselves, and the range is commendable. While I do not personally have a taste for hearts and flowers, there are a number of widely varied projects and ideas one can glean from these pages to bring a little joy into the life of very nearly anyone with a taste for the Isles! There are however, a number of items that rely upon glue for their structural integrity or finishing, which always makes me rather nervous, but even if this bothers you, there are plenty of others that do not bother with the glue.
