Format: Paperback
I won a pre-release copy of the book and had a chance to leaf through it. First of all, congrats to the author for her first book. It looks very nice, with bright, clear photographs and nice typesetting.

I've been a jewelry designer for about five years now, so for me, the book was a little too simplistic. I already know how to make earrings and bracelets in general, so beyond the materials used, nothing in it was new to me personally.

That said however, the book would be wonderful for someone who's never made jewelery before. If you are new to the entire idea of making your own custom pieces, and like a geeky chic look, this would be an ideal book for you! The projects are very approachable and would be a great starting place for people interesting in learning how to get started.

3 stars for those with jewelry-making experience.
4 stars to a complete newbie.

I just love this book! I've since made quite a few items of jewelry after purchasing this book. It's easy to follow and contains a lot of good photographs showing details of the jewelry items constructed. Everything about this book is great, from the page layout to the projects presented! I recommend this book to anyone who loves quirky, geeky, one-of-a-kind accessories to wear, or to give as gifts to like-minded friends.

I highly recommend this book!

this is the author's first book, and it shows beginners how to make unique and fun jewelry that celebrates the "geek". Easy to follow instructions and a variety of products to make.

Going back and looking at the description of this book, I realize I must have missed the full meaning of this line: "The parts are all inexpensive and easy to find at your local Radio Shack." I was assuming I could take apart old computers and other electronics to get components to recycle and repurpose into cool jewelery. You can't use ANY old components as you are warned that they contain lead. Sigh. What a waste this book is for me. I'm not really wowed by the jewelry either.
