A very usable and practical book.
The links and connections Robert teaches in this book are well beyond just rivets and jump rings, although they are in there as well and in easy to understand words and photos. Plus he has a wonderful philosophy behind his designs that comes out in the language of the book in a most interesting and thoughtful way.
If you are looking for a great book on cold connections and jewelry making in general, this book will be an asset to your jewelry book library.
I have several of Roberts DVD's and watched him several times on Craftcast. I will repeat what I said earlier that Robert is a Master at teaching so this book is a wonderful reference book for any artist's library.
Some people found that the talismans & amulets were simple and complained that they were made with found objects. Isn't that the idea? A "lucky charm" (talisman or amulet) doesn't have to be something you've spent a fortune on--it can be a beat up item you found as a kid that feels "right" for you.
I make jewelry & this was very helpful in many aspects, both in how to create a piece and how to personalize items.
If you want to learn about talismans & amulets, this is an excellent source. It's a good place to start learning how to make your own.
I'm glad I decided to order it!
