As a newbie, I think this book covered a lot of ground. The design projects weren't run of the mill or too rustic-looking. The contents were thorough. All materials, tools and techniques were well explained and accompanied by pictures/examples. There are 15 excellent projects from napkin rings, to vases, to bookends - all well explained and with great pictures. Templates and supplies are also included. All in all a good book for a beginner and perhaps for more advanced.
The beautiful cover fooled me completely. The desings are poor and execution and finishing of the mosaics are even poorer. I regret having purchased this book, specially having so many other options.
This book is an okay addition to your collection if you are someone who must have every book on a subject, regardless of quality. It is not informative enough to be a beginner book, and the projects are not sophisticated enough to be a book for a serious hobbyist. Nothing against the author and her projects, but it was a waste of money for me.
Excellent book. Good ideas, good pictures, good instructions. Would recommend to others starting out with glass mosaics.
