1.Planning a workshop
2.Designing a project
Then finishes up with technical info and glossary. As with her other books. The pictures are clear, and follow the flow of work being described.The workshop section will give an idea of what you need to start and what is needed to carry on with some of the fancy work. With ample text to cover the beginners who will pick up this book. It moves one through a couple of projects with varied materials. The advance section is as she states "introduces some additional techniques" along with the statement that you can use one or all the techniques and that any one of them could be the subject of a book. Also she states that if you don't have the tools and or equipment take a class. In The US Adult Education, enrichment classes or community colleges all have classes.
The biggest problem with books on the subject of any hobby/avocation. Is that after you own three or so they all will cover some of the same ground.
I do have to confess I have vary rarely met a book I didn't learn something from. And in the art metal arena, there are as many ways of doing some thing as people doing them.
If you are a beginner and this is your first book you will find it useful to give an overview of the jewelry arts and a nice glimpse in to what is needed in the advance work area and the tools needs to start. I own it and use it.
