This book has really nice looking projects and nice photos, but I am not sure that the book cover photo and title really gives an accurate portrayal of the contents. I was expecting bracelets, necklaces, etc, made of fiber AND metal, as the sub-title and photo suggest. About half of the projects include no metal or wire, to speak of.

Also, more annoying, about half of the projects are of amulet style pouches (bag on a string,) and pins. The other half of the projects are "necklaces." However, the "necklace" projects are really for the pendant ATTACHED to the necklace. In other words, there are no fully woven necklaces or bracelets, except for the ONE bracelet on the cover. That one cover bracelet is, in fact, the ONLY bracelet, in the book.

This is a nice book for weaving or macrame... good technique, easy to learn, beautiful projects. But, it is a weaving/macrame book, and should not even have mentioned metal in the title, or used a wire woven bracelet on the cover. Also, I think the term "Jewelry" is a little broad for the projects in this book.

I will probably make some of the more modern looking projects, such as the one on the cover, and the fishbone "necklace" pendant. I would not, however, have purchased this book if I had taken a preview.

Interesting and informative on some ways to weave, but I think the book tried too hard to appeal to a large audience. I bought the book because it billed itself as a metal and fiber book, but most of the projects contained within are fiber related and there are not many true metal projects shown. If you are resourceful and use your imagination you can translate some of the projects and adapt them to your needs. Overall a nice book with pretty pictures and some useful information, but too scattered in scope to really be worthwhile.

This book was not really what I was looking for. It will give beginners some interesting projects to get them going.

I was hoping for more variety in the projects contained in the book. I found them repetitive and somewhat boring.

Book tries to do too many things. If you work with fiber, you might like it. I work with wire and I did not.

Nice book but very simplistic. More for the beginner.
