Pros:
- Has the best jewelry design section I've seen.

Cons:
- The clay techniques are pretty basic. Intermediate clayers could get bored.

Who It's Good For:
- The clay techniques are definitely easy enough for beginners.
- Intermediate clayers may find the book worthwhile for its jewelry design tips, its wire-working tips, or just for inspiration.
