I just started learning more about wire jewelry and my best friend bought me this book. I spent a lot of time with this book learning new techniques and improving my skills.

The book starts by telling you about the different tools you will need and what makes them different. It also goes through some of the basic techniques so if you are just starting out this is a great book to learn how to do the simplest of things. Then it gets into some of the harder things.

Crafts. Begins by going over the tools you need to make the earrings in this book, then the techniques, providing step by step instruction on how to make head pins, loops, ear wires, coils, spirals, and jump rings.

How-to arts and crafts books have the tendency to be hit or miss. This one was really interesting, if only because it was full of excellent ideas. Some of the design ideas were really unique, and were very enjoyable to read about. The earring projects were also pretty basic. A beginner could definitely pick up this book and figure out how to make the majority of the designs.

My biggest problem with this book was that the finished projects looked so amateur. Most of the earrings they showed weren't even close to the same size when finished or even the same shape. I liked the step by step instructions and thought the information about what tools and supplies you need was very helpful, but just couldn't get over the photos of the finished projects.

Enough to keep one interested and experimenting for some time. I never make the exact thing I see in the book, I always change it up in some way depending on what I have on hand to work with, but the inspiration is invaluable.

I really liked this book. The pages full of great pictures and fun designs that made me really want to take a class so I can try my hand out on some of those really neat earring designs. I might have to buy this book instead of just borrowing it from the library.
