4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully designed book 24 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a truly lovely looking book with really clear instructions and inspiring imagery and projects. The only big disappointment is that the majority of the flowers are made using a hot iron, which has proved virtually impossible to find. To say to the reader "can be found on eBay" has proved to be misleading...I mean eBay has its uses but I only found one...the other side of the world, at huge expense. If all the purchasers of this book are looking for one of these irons.....that's a lot of confused people chasing a scarce item! The retailer recommended does have them, but they are very expensive, so to complete these projects would take major investment...and you might discover you are no good at it! Ah well, you could always re-sell the iron on eBay! Please let me know if you do....I'd be interested!

I have purchased this book particularly to learn how to create and shape flower petals and as an inspiration for other projects. I'm starting my own line of bridal accessory myself and this book was fantastic inspiration and guide to me. Finally I've learnt how to work with silk materials and recreate them into beautiful flowers as it shows on cover. This book is great for beginners as well as for someone, who is already experienced in making accessory. It shows the basic millinery techniques and tools, it is wonderfully explained and thanks to this book I happen to be in much higher level of bridal accessory world! I have purchased my millinery iron through eBay (It is easy to find) and couldn't be happier! Here and there I still have a peek into the book for an inspiration. Excellent choice!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent techniques and starting point 30 Nov 2013
By Lilipop
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a lovely book, not least for the images. This book is not old fashioned as one reviewer described it...this review comment is unfair. The author sells her own designs based on these techniques, and it is techniques that she is revealing in this book. Her own shop sells much more intricate designs - why would she she you how to do them in her book? I agree that the flower making tools are expensive, but so is everything millinery-related. If you are just making one piece for yourself or a few pieces for others, then buy the pre-made silk flowers - they are just as beautiful and readily available...the author suggests that she does this too. I love this book and have made a few headpieces based on these techniques. Don't hesitate to buy it, it's great.
