I very much appreciate the detailed instructions and all the information about the various types of resins. The projects in this book are more modern and less clumsy like other books I have read. I find myself wanting to do some derivative work rather than copying but it's very inspirational in the projects that are included.

This book has lovely pictures, good instructions for a variety of techniques and material types and many great design ideas. I look forward to trying some out soon. I'm also quite taken with the style of a lot of this stuff, very inspiring for me.

I often download electronic books but not this time. I looked at this book in person first(then purchased at for a better price). Such great pictures, full of inspiration and I can't wait to start some of these resin projects. Great for a beginner like myself. You won't need another manual for resin jewelry.

The book is OK. I really wanted a bit more. There is minimal info on earring making. There is only one type of earring hanger system used: An eye pin and wire hook for putting through the pierced ear. SIMPLE really describes this book and the 25 projects. The emphasis seems to be on pendants. Look elsewhere for more in-depth procedures and types of jewelry making with resin.

Clear, concise, and beautifully photographed tutorial introduction to the resin process. Any beginner can easily follow along and begin making wonderful creations of their own. The projects are very inspiring and you let your imagination take it from there.

I think I want too much from some of the books I purchase. The author does a great job of explaining her craft and the book is more than adequate. I have been working with resin jewelry for over a year now, and really wanted some inspiration to ignite some creative juices in me, & I can't say I got that from this book. I know I will pull this out for reference in future, so I may update my review, once I am back to working full time w/resin. For now I am working on other seasonal projects, & won't return to resin jewelry much until the late fall.

Anyone new to making resin jewelry will find this book helpful. Capturing, coloring and using photos in resin are some of the techniques explored.

Gives lots of great information about the subject. It's the perfect how to book for resin jewelry. I recommend it!
