- A Great Little Book Review by Vickie
I bought this book on a whim as I have never tried stamping and hadn't actually been interested, but I looked at the preview and saw some projects I thought were quite interesting. To be honest I always thought stamping some words on a bit of metal quite boring, but I saw from this book there can be a lot more to it, so was intrigued.
It turns out it's a great little book and has opened my eyes to another skill to add to my jewelry making and has my mind racing to possibilities. I really like a number of the projects, if not the techniques used, and found it to be very simple to follow, which I've found in most craft books is most uncommon. Many's a time I've bought an instructional book to find the pictures and instructions impossible to follow without video to see how it's done, many's a time the projects are very complicated when a person like me just wants simple, attractive pieces using new or inventive techniques. With this book though I am certain I can follow every single step and technique required to make the pieces. I am very much looking forward to having a go.
I actually found this book has piqued my interest all over again with the possibilities in making my jewelry. I'm really quite pleased with this purchase.
