Have seen better Jun 3, 2008
Basic projects which require you to have certain tools to make. I few good ideas for gifts though not as many has hoped for. Features more jewelry than gift ideas
A good Sep 3, 2005

Good Ideas and illustrations Jan 9, 2005

The only complaint I have about this book is that it requires some special wire-working tools for some of the projects, like a wire jig.
