There's a lot about setting up a studio, as if a Dummies book reader is planning to go into massive production immediately. This may be useful later, or it may not--I'm interested in several crafts types, and so my studio space is shared among projects of different types. Nor do I have any intention of making jewelry for sale anytime soon.
The book may be useful in the long run, but I would have preferred a series of projects to teach techniques, proceeding in steps with skill building.
