This book was helpful, the break down of what to use and how to use it was great. However, it was definitely not worth the $16 or $17 dollars, it was very short. The illustrations were nice but the descriptions were a little tough to follow. Overall I am happy with this book, my first wrap came out great, but it is definitely not worth the money.

This book is great, especially for beginners. I am not an expert, but there were some things that I skipped over, because I was already familiar with. The very best part of the book, was the way the author taught, answering all the ' whys' and 'hows'. I cannot accept anything at face value, I have to know 'why' it is easier to wrap a slightly irregular stone, than a perfectly shaped one. I learned easier, because of her teaching method..

I like the book as it is a very basic book on wirewrapping. It might be a bit expensive for the size but it was what I was looking for. I would recommend it for anyone starting uot on wirewrapping. It shows how to wrap different items, rocks, gems or coins with holes.

If you are a beginner in wire wrapping you need this book--I taught myself how to do the cage style and fancier wraps with this book--it's instructions are clear and it goes step by step and is very easy to follow

Very clear instruction and good photos for beginner. Useful information. Unfortunately the book's presentation (not the content) is very poor. It is just a colour photocopy of 32 pages and blind them together to sell for over $14. Just looking at the book it is not worth it. But the content is good.

I was looking for a better explanation of how to do wire wrapping and the book is excellent at giving techniques and projects to practice the lessons. I am enjoying the lessons greatly and would recommend it to anyone starting out.

It has been a blast! I've been doing a lot to learn how to wrap stones, etc. That is what got me started in this whole jewelry thing all together. It's wonderful to take a step up & forward. Book is perfect & shipping what perfect. Sf-AB+

Nice beginning and reference book for wrapping all types of stones and beads. I like wire wrapping in my spare time so this is a great reference for me.
