From Library Journal
For these very original jewelry designs, Banes draws on her lifelong interest in found objects and ethnic ornaments. Her book has photos of many of her bead and fiber necklaces, with diagrammed patterns for the woven fiber parts. This off-loom needle weaving is worked over pins on a foam board in a technique similar to pillow lacemaking. The result is a woven pendant incorporating beads and having a large ethnic ornament as a focal point. This unique approach to jewelry design belongs in art as well as advanced crafts collections.

There is pretty much no advice on how to use this technique to create your own pieces (other than to suggest changing the colours of the included patterns).
This book is best suited to people who are willing to spend the time learning the techniques and ready for a lot of trial and error in creating unique designs.
There are also no alternative materials suggested, what's on the list is what, apparently, you will use, so you also need to be prepared to experiment if you can't get the right materials, or be confident in your yarn choosing abilities!
In short, this book lacks a lot of potentially useful info that would have fitted nicely in the "let's talk about me" section at the front.
