3.0 out of 5 stars Complete Jewellry-Maker is a good book, especially for beginners. 11 Jan 2013
By Catherine Bode Fried - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I chose to give it 3 Stars because it is not as complete as Jinks M's other books, and I have most all of them and give them very high marks.

This one duplicates info in some of her other books. For seasoned jewellery makers it is not an exciting book.
