    I've said before that I don't usually actually read these books but I read this one It looked like a uick read and it was It was also a nice change from the last jewelry book I actually read The instructions had a photograph for each step instead of just the first and last ones Had I read this book before the book I finished yesterday I probably would have been irritated by how far the breakdown of each step is taken However after the last book it was almost refreshing to get the end of the directions and actually understand what I was supposed to do In this case is and while I would likely have been able to do or can do most of what's included in this book I do not regret taking the time to read it which probably totalled less than an hour

    This is simply the BEST BOOK EVER FOR BEGINNERS I started by myself with that and the step by step projects are so well explained and illustrated that it makes jewelry making extremely easy Each techniue and step to make a jewel is very well explained and accompanied by pictures not illustrations but big pictures It is the ultimate guide to start mastering the art of jewelry making I absolutely loved that book The projects are really basic and simple nothing extravagant or really original but all is there to make a great start There is even a section about metalworking and silver smithing
