Good book for ideas Review by alaughingdog
Rating

I will probably not make any of the designs in this book exactly as portrayed, but will rather use the book as a rich source for ideas about how to use very simple components in a variety of ways. The designs are easy to follow and make it clear how much can be done with wire and a few good beads.

Disapointing Review by Lynn
Rating

I was very disappointed with the book, I had hoped to find something new and interesting but it was all so run of the mill, I got no inspiration or ideas from it.
It did have clear photos and basic instructions but overall design content was lacking.

101 Wire Earrings Review by Merry May

This is the BEST book! I love making earrings, and this book is just packed with ideas and easy projects with lots of step by step photos. I put sticky tags on the pages for the projects I want to make; only problem is that the tags are on at least half of the projects! Guess I'd better get busy!
