I'm not sure why the previous reviewer gave the book three stars when her review says she liked it -- but let me say the book is a well-thought out, exhaustive book that covers SO many aspects of jewelry design. Beginners will be overjoyed, and even advanced jewelry designers like myself will learn things (for instance, silk knotting, a skill I've never learned). The book covers everything from basic stringing to cutting your own jump rings, and outlines in depth a wealth of tools -- not just "here's a pair of pliers", but all the way up to what a Flex Shaft is and what it's for.

This is a GREAT book for someone just getting started in their jewelry-making career. It will help them decide which direction to head -- stringing, wire design, metal, resin, you name it.

I spent my early years learning how to make jewelry from Tammy Powley's books and newsletters. Without her enthusiasm and dedication, I never would have continued with efforts to try to educate myself from home.

That is why I am so delighted to see this fantastic, complete and uniformly excellent guide to all aspects of jewelry design, plus the tools required, and projects which you can make to incite your creativity.

Ms. Powley also has some terrific assistance from her own husband,as well as the great Cyndi Lavin, and fab Jennifer Perkins. Because of the author's thoroughness and wonderfully clear style of teaching, I am delighted to see that readers will be able make selections as they learn and grow from every aspect of jewelry making: simple stringing, to polymer clay, to resin. Metal work and wire work are also included, as well as the basics of how to make jump rings and other creative techniques. And that is just the beginning!

I am not familiar with this author or her work, although it's apparent from the other reviews that she's well loved. While the book is wide-ranging and technically accurate, I was disappointed...

...that a huge portion of the book is dedicated to photos of tools needed for each genre of jewelry making. The pickle pot alone took up half a page! Each tool had its own photo. Why not compile the equipment into one photo with a corresponding numbered list? Then you'd have more space for techniques.

...with the quality of the materials for many of the projects (for example, using cheap, thin copper wire to make hook & eye findings--pps. 48-9, tool marks clearly visible).

...with the poor execution of some of the projects (like earrings with unequal wire wrapping--p. 172 & the polymer clay bead earrings on p. 186--fingerprinted & sloppily done with the cheapest brand of clay). There was no hint of the amazingly beautiful work being done in polymer... Read more
