This is the second Jen Cushman book I have purchased. LOVE them both. Out of the dozen metal smithing books I have, I like this book because it is easy to follow, simple enough for a beginner but challenging for someone who has prior experience. Each of the items you can make is current and fashionable. Great for a gift or to make and wear for yourself. I also like that each project is just a starting or jumping off point - plenty of inspiration to customize and make your own. Jen makes hammering and torching fun!

Enjoyed reading about the techniques but I didn't really care for any of the projects in the book. Will definitely try some of the projects though, in order to solidify the skills gleaned from the reading material.

This is a fantastic book for someone who wants to get started in metals, but is overwhelmed by the tools, techniques, options, products, etc. The opening chapter, "Metal Fundamentals," is more comprehensive than many intro-level books on the subject, as it includes not only the "basics" like pliers, annealing, dapping, and making wire loops, but also topics such as etching, patinas and attachments. The techniques are taught in a well-photographed, step-by-step project-based format. If you're a more experienced jewelry maker already familiar with the basics of wire, moving metal, drawing a bead and so forth, the page-size finished project photographs are full of adaptable ideas. For makers who don't have access to a torch/are scared of a torch/are forbidden from having a torch in their living quarters, there are many projects in the book which rely on forming and cold connections, and don't even require annealing. Finally, at less than $20, this book is a great alternative if you have wanted to take a class in metalwork, but don't have access due to geography/funds.

I love the look of metal but was intimidated by all the technical information in the resources I had found. I was wishing I could afford to take a course somewhere when I discovered this wonderful book by Jen Cushman, an awesome designer and writer, who delivered the information in such a friendly way that nothing seemed too difficult to try. That was my course!

I highly recommend this book.

I bought Jen's book from her when I took a class from her in Houston. I have been playing around with metal for a couple years and found her book very inspirational. I love the mixing of fabric and metal she's done in some of her projects. I tried it and my jewelry turned out really nice. The instructions are easy to follow as well. I think this book would be a good start for someone just starting out as well as intermediate metal heads. It's my favorite! I made three pieces in a few hours and got lots of compliments...which equals SALES!

I am a big fan of Jen Cushman and her work, so this book was on my wish list. I was thrilled when I received it because I had the weekend to immerse myself in it. What a marvelous book! It is not only a terrific reference book, which I will use often, but it is also filled with great projects that will provide inspiration for future projects.

Whether you are a novice or a seasoned jewelry maker, this book will fill a gap in your jewelry making library. Jen presents the material in an easy, informative style that is enjoyable and not "text book". The step outs in the projects section are invaluable.

This is the second book of Jen's that I have and I love them both!

Jen Cushman is a writer of great dimension and loves the world of craft. She has been a writer and columnist for many years. Her first volume, Explore, Create, Resinate has become the Resin Bible. It has won many awards. Jen's new book is great for beginning metalworkers up through intermediate. The photos are excellent, the book is easy to understand, and the stories inside about Jen's own experience are encouraging. Jen Cushman is a natural storyteller, and that is where all her teaching ability starts. People are drawn to her as a teacher, an expert in both the use of mixed media/resin as well as metalworking. I am proud to own a copy of this book---which I paid for, with great pleasure! and would highly recommend it to anyone interested in getting started in working at the bench with metal. This is a very worthy purchase.

Finally!!!! I would just like to say that this book is FINALLY the answer to my questions...fears....and doubts that I could ever make metal jewelry! Even though I too have attempted to learn metal smithing from some pros....I felt utterly defeated...since I couldn't make a perfect anything....TaDa!!!! I don't have to!!! But, I do want to know how make pieces that are well designed and crafted. This book offers the tools and step-by-step information to do just that. Thanks, Jen Cushman...you are an inspiration!
