5-Stars! HIGHLY recommended!
Oh, wow! This is a beautiful book FULL of gorgeous designs of beaded copper jewelry! The designs are many, the possibilities are endless! The directions are very clear and concise to follow. You could have an entire line of beaded copper jewelry just from this one book alone! As you can see on the cover, this book does NOT stop at the basics of jewelry making. This book will stretch your skills in a great way. You will learn how to make, for instance, circles and swir

Honestly I have not had the chance to try out some of the goodies in this book, but I did read the whole thing and I love how it goes step by step with Photos to walk you through each step of each design. I like to make jewelry and have not tried to make anything with just wire, but I plan to very soon. This book is fantastic for people like myself who want to learn the art of Wire bending and making decorative jewelry out of wire. I know it says Copper but you could do these designs with just ...more

Okay, some of you know I like to dabble in jewelry. Granted I'll never be showing my stuff on the red carpet (well, unless I install some in my home) but I loved to have fun with it. So, when I had the chance to review this book... I grabbed my tools and took a chance!

What I loved about this book is that it went through the complete basics. It shows you how to do simple links, links with beads, and even jump rings. Sometimes that is useful if you want to use the same materials to create an even

Recommends it for: jewelry artists, jewelry makers, crafters
I must admit, I'm a novice when it comes to wire working. I have tried bending wire into paperclips and am dreadfully challenged. Yet this book was so beautifully done and the projects so very appealing, I found myself staying up past 2 am to finish my latest attempt to enhance my skills.

The projects are marvelous and inspiring, the directions are clear and easy to follow, and one of my favorite features is that the author uses simple, household items for many of the bends. This book is a keeper

A fabulous introduction for a beginner to wire jewelry (like me), but I think this will also be very useful for more experienced crafters. The set of 300+ pictured wire links (accompanied by detailed photos and creation instructions) is invaluable and will probably prompt some creative ideas even for casual browsers.

While I didn't have the opportunity to utilize the book due to not having the supplies, I was impressed with the amount of information provided. I am not new to jewelry making, but this book has many new techniques I've never seen. The photos look extremely helpful as well!
