Format: Paperback
I bought this book and "Creating wire and beaded Jewellery" byt the same author at once. i have never before done any sort of jewellery craft and yet this week have made several items that are impressive for a beginner (if I do say so myself!) Linda Jones gives fantastically simple to understand instructions and her designs are both pretty and stylish.

I have given the book a four rather than a five because the styles of jewellery in the two books are quite similar and I think it could have done with a couple of slighter harder designs. I am chomping at the bit for more of a challenge than these books offer.

I would recommend this book to other beginners, it really whets your creative appetite!

I have been making beaded jewellery for about 6 months and I saw this book in my local shop. I was lucky enough to then get it for Xmas and it is wonderful if you are starting out with wirework as it is easy to follow and very inspiring. You won't be disappointed.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I make gold & silver Celtic jewellery, so I was very interested in this book to give me some new ideas. I found it somewhat disappointing. The book is very visual with lots of colour images and everything is well explained. There is even a little history here and there about the origins of the Celtic designs. However I found the scope of the book to be very limited. Most of the designs are like those you see on the cover, consisting of simple spirals. I personally make many designs of Celtic bracelets using traditional designs of interwoven knots. There are no such Celtic knot designs in this book, so I feel the term Celtic jewellery is a little misleading.

The book is aimed perhaps more at beaders; People who make simple jewellery at home. There is no mention of silver, gold or how to solder. The designs are basically bent and shaped wire with beads added. If that's your thing then you may get a little something from this book, but do you really need a whole book on how to wrap a spiral?

Format: Paperback
Introduction, information on tools, materials and basic techniques are invaulable to a beginner. The projects are diverse and techniques displayed by great photography along with the straightforward instructions. The jig patterns section is an absolute bonus to enable to complete the enclosed projects but also fire the imagination to devise your own designs. I highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to use wire to make beautiful jewellery.

Whether a total novice or an experienced worker in wire jewellery, this book has a great deal to offer. Good clear photographs, instructions and diagrams for all to follow with success at the end of the task. It was well worth the wait to have this book and it has been very useful in Celtic and other projects. It is a large format book and packed with great ideas, even grids for making your own designs at the back. A worthy addition to every jewellery makers bookshelf.
