Before I actually knew HOW to make any sort of jewelry, I was anxious to LEARN to make jewelry.I signed up for a local class which was held nearby. It was a two day class, and I was very excited.I didn't realize when I went that it was a metalworking class. I thought I would be stringing beads.In actuality I was learning everything which Candie Cooper teaches in this wonderful book, but without any preliminary knowledge or understanding of what I was doing at all.I was handed the tools and was taught the techniques without explanation.I am very sorry I had that experience.I really could have used it in a far more positive manner, slightly later in my design career.If you grasp what metalworking is, and wish to learn metalworking, on the other hand, you will be delighted to find this great book, Metalworking 101 for Beaders, in which the author, Candie Cooper, illuminates all of the questions I had at the time about the tools, the techniques, such as sawing and annealing (which I was doing, but really poorly), and the materials required. There are even some super design templates for you to use to replicate some of the projects!I have now progressed in my desire to become a jewelry designer, and I think that the level of Ms. Cooper's creativity is very exciting. I believe the reader will find, as I did, that her encouraging manner is extremely infectious, and that her designs are truly original and charming!I love the way she shows how to switch things out to give the reader more options on some of the projects as well. You will want to try out this type of jewelry making after one look through the book.The way in which she teaches is very accessible and clear.
