This is one of my treasures.
Even if you are not professional you can easily do most of the projects with a little patience.
And you get lots of detailed information as well.
This book certainly does all of that! It's clear, concise and thorough. And although I personally don't like, and would never buy, any of the finished products as featured in the projects, I can appreciate them and the work that has gone into them. I can't wait to give them a try and see what I can achieve.
The book is very poorly written and too imprecise to be of much value, a handbook it is certainly not. Concepts are used throughout the book without any precise definitions, subject bordering on the technical or on physics are incorrectly explained, revealing the author's ignorance. Concepts and methods which in a handbook should be illustrated by means of diagrams are either left unexplained or illustrated with imprecise photos.
The only positive quality of the book is a range of photos of modern jewellery that may serve as an inspiration - but you can get many more through a search engine much faster and cheaper - and again, the exact fabrication procedures are not explained in a single instance.
This book is not worth buying - very poor value.
