    Great Patterns and Instructions Review by Barbara
    Rating

    These are not easy patterns! They take time and good eyes, but that are worth it. I have made a couple and still am working on two of them. Whenever I wear the bracelets I made from these patterns, I get compliment after compliment. Again, the patterns are not for beginners or for those who want a make and take evening!

    WARNING!!!!!! Review by Billy

    THIS BOOK WAS A TOTAL DISAPPOINTMENT. MY WARNING IS THIS...I ORDERED THRU INTERWEAVE, WHEN I PRINTED THE INVOICE IT HAD ANOTHER NAME FOR THE SELLER, WHEN I RECEIVED MY SHIPPING, ORDER NOTIFICATION IT CAME FROM ANOTHER COMPANY NAME. WHEN THE ORDER CAME THE PACKING SLIP HAD ANOTHER COMPANY NAME AND FINALLY WHEN THE ORDER CLEARED MY VISA ACCOUNT IT CAME THRU WITH A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT NAME. I HAD TO CALL MY BANK TO MAKE SURE WHAT THE CHARGE WAS AND WHO FROM. I CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW MANY SITES/COMPANIES HAVE MY INFORMATION. FROM NOW ON, IF I SEE THE BOOK ON THE INTERWEAVE SITE I WILL BUT IT FROM SOMEONE ELSE EVEN IF I HAVE TO PAY A HIGHER PRICE!
