Recommends it for: Avant-garde jewelry aficionados
While an improvement from 1000 Ideas for Creative Reuse (see my review) in that, out of both Hoopla ebook editions, this one's photographs are much larger, 1,000 Jewelry Inspirations: Beads, Baubles, Dangles, and Chains otherwise suffers from many of the other book's exact same problems.

Inspirational eye candy. This book is a gallery of unique and awesome jewelry. The artists use assorted materials to make these creations, like paper, polymer, vintage, fibres, and fabrics. Nice pictures to study and aspire your creations to. The book provides some very basic how-to instructions like making your own hooks and jump rings but this is not an instruction manual. I wish that some of the photos were larger to show more detail.
Don't get this book if you are looking for a step-by-step guide. This is more for the person who is already comfortable creating jewelry and art, but would like some visual inspiration. Consider it a jumping-off point for your own creativity.

This book has given me a ton of ideas of my own and I've enjoyed exploring them to see what sort of creations I can come up with.

It is a nice to have book, actually. Many interesting projects, from beginner to advance level to inspire your creativity.

More like a catalog.

Unless your looking for a catalog, I don't recommend this. This is not an art instruction book. It's browsing pictures of things people made including where you can shop for thier items.
