Excellent teaching. Review by Doneta

I have viewed many videos and read many books. This video was the best teaching I have experienced without hands-on. She was very thorough, not too slow, or too fast.

This book is a must for every jewelry crafter’s library!

“Contemporary Copper Jewelry: Step by Step Techniques and Projects” has something for everyone, no matter what technique you prefer. It has projects that coil, wrap and weave, as well as string, and the designs would be beautiful in all types of metal. There are great photo tutorials, which is a plus, along with a variety of beautiful jewelry making projects including pins, rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings.

Although I had previously purchased the paperback version of this book (which also included a DVD), I was so impressed that I recently purchased the eBook version as well, so I could have easy access to it on my computer.

Excellent book Review by Georgia Morgan

Great projects, well laid out. Definitely the kind of book that inspires and leads one on to further projects. I wish the video had been available when I originally bought the book; in the future, I may not bite when a ravishing new book is offered, since this seems to happen frequently, and like most people, I don't want to pay twice. This is one of my favorites sources for techniques and ideas.
