This is a lovely book with a wide variety of techniques and projects. The key thing you need to know is that this book was not 'written', but 'compiled'. If you subscribe to Lapidary Journal, you will have seen these projects in pages of various months issues. While it is nice to have all of the projects in one book - as opposed to having to sort through old issues of the magazine to look for them - it also means that I payed for organization instead of new content. If I would have realized this, I probably would not have purchased this book. However, if you do not subscribe to the magazine, the projects are great and attempting them will give you a wide array of skills. All in all - great book - if you don't already subscribe to the magazine.

Bought this book for info on one project and found a few more I will try with my own slant. Well written and lots of great pictures to show more clearly how to work on a project. Arrived in excellent condition.

Great ideas and inspiration. Can get beautiful pieces for a fraction of the cost because of the overwhelming price of gold and silver. I am very satisfied with my order and this is a keeper for my library.

A lot of reviews didn't really praise this book; I'm so glad I didn't listen to those review. I receive a subscription of the magazine they discuss and have for the last 7 years. There were two designs I remember, the rest I don't. What I like about this book, is that I like almost every design in there and I'm making them or something similar. I'm soooo happy with the purchase. I keep returning to it weekly. I recommend the purchase of this book (and I'm not a beginner, I'm in between intermediate and advance). I love copper. I've been teaching in my studio and stores for the last 5 years.

I've never done this before. I'm writing in the review section before purchasing the item! I came here to buy the book because of a very comprehensive review I just read over at a site I often read: The Beading Gem's Journal. It has lots of pictures of projects as well as a review so I thought I'd add it here in case potential buyers would like the opportunity to see more of what is inside before deciding. I saw, and decided it's worth it. The link is:

informative and well illustrated, with a wide variety of interesting and doable projects! love it!

The book has some interesting designs. I enjoyed reading through it and it has great tips on working with copper. A good buy

I am self taught and I work mainly with copper because of cost. This book will help me advance my technique besides giving me great ideas.
