A quick note to say how much I appreciate my new book. I had been
going back and forth on what to do next (after my first metalsmithing
course) and I have found great guidance and inspiration in this book.
The techniques covered are varied (from knotting pearls to cold
connections to marriage of metals) and interesting. There are even
have things that pertain to beaders… There are illustrations for
the techniques covered that provide much inspiration.
I anticipate that the suggested projects will be very useful. They
are actually stylish (in my opinion, this is rare).
As far as the work, the author herself is quite accomplished and has
many impressive photos of work in the book. Other artists I am
currently fascinated by are also included (Munya Avigail Upin,
I couldn’t speak for 1000 Rings, as I don’t have it yet, but I am so
happy with my new book that I really wanted to tell other people
And so it is, inspired and ready to go once again
