27 of 28 people found the following review helpful By Jane in Milwaukee TOP 1000 REVIEWER on July 26, 2008
Format: Paperback
Miss Franklin is an expert in her field. She has expanded and perfected the art of goldwork, taking it to new levels of interest and beauty. Her techniques are not only understandable but also very appealing: you feel like sitting down and beginning a project almost immediately. That is if you can drag yourself away from the well-written text and the gorgeous close-up pictures! I had the honor and pleasure of taking a goldwork course from her in the Victoria and Albert Museum when I fortuitously was in London a couple years ago. She's patient and interesting to speak with and graciously signed my book. She has a website where she sells the rare and expensive threads you need to make these pieces authentic. It's worth it. See also her new book on Whitework. I have hundreds of needlework books and this is among my top 10 favorites. You gotta get it.
