4.0 out of 5 stars lovely pieces May 30 2006
By M. Poller - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Great book for stringing ideas. Case is obviously an expert in this field and she shares much of her knowledge here. Lots of good tips on how to make her designs. They are really beautiful. She organizes the book by type of bead. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because she says to string the beads according to the picture and while the pictures are very pretty, they aren't large enough to see that clearly the order of the beads. Each item is rated on a scale of 1-10 and time given to make the project along with all the items needed. Her hair slide or barrette has very detailed instructions on how to make it. Also there are lots of good earring ideas here. I've just ordered her earlier books.
5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites! Feb. 2 2015

Beautiful and original designs. The photos provided an excellent picture of the pieces. The instructions were clear and easy to understand, especially for a beginner. Some of the pieces were made from beads acquired in other counties and required substitution. The time is showed to make the pieces had to have been after all beads, finding, etc. were acquired and put in order. (Like you see on TV when it takes only 30 minutes to "make" dinner). All in all very enjoyable and informative. Looking forward to looking at her other books.

This book was recommended by my jewelry instructor but I found it to be a little more advanced for novice jewelry designers like me. The projects are numbered as to ease of making so they go from 1 to 8 but a majority of the designs are 5 and above. The designs, however, are beautiful and challenging if you have the time to figure them out.

I love this book one of my favs it came in very good condition like new. I just started making jewelry and I have learned alot from this book. I already made two projects from pages 76 and 91. Good details and alot of important info in the beginning of the book about materials. I really learned more from this book than the class I took at a local craft store!
