I have returned this book. The 'Look Inside' feature shows beautiful designs that lead you to believe these are the projects you will find featured. They are a gallery only....none of them are projects within this book. For almost $21.00 I expected a high quality publication. Instead, I received a smaller-than-average self-published book that is only 4mm thick. The covers are the only glossy pages you will find. Although the 10 projects are well-documented with many photographs, the projects themselves are not of the same caliber design/work that the 'gallery' shows. This feels more like a pamphlet than a $25 book. Very disappointed....

The projects in this book are well-written with clear instructions and good illustrations. However, for the price I was expecting a much thicker book with more variety. The items in this book are all pretty much alike with very native-looking colors and sizes. The use of wire is very minimal, and is basically only good for getting a few ideas from it.

This book has some really nice jewelry designs for intermediate micro-macrame. The wirework with the macrame makes for an interesting combination and the wirework seems pretty simple and straight forward. The projects are beautifully done and the instructions and photos are a lot more detailed than in many books. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be inspired and expand on their knowledge of micro-macrame.

If you want to learn micro macramé then this is one book you should get. Her designs and color choices are beautiful. She gives very clear step-by-step directions at the beginning, for each type of knot used. The photos are very clear. I've not done any macramé since high school (in the 70's) so I was looking forward to learning how to use the technique with very thin cord.

I like the content of this book a lot. The designs are beautiful and the instructions are very clear and easy to follow. My complaint is that it is a poor quality self-publication. Cheesy font and the photos are slightly blurry and off color, though the detail is still fairly easy to see. The cover is beautifully photographed so I was very surprised to see such inferior quality on the inside. And because of the inferior quality I feel the MSRP of $24.95 is much too high (glad I didn't pay that much!). Truthfully, had I seen this in a book store I might not have purchased it. However, the content is inspirational.

I was slightly disappointed in this book the main reason is that most of the ideas offered in the book are basically the same.
Maybe it is because you are using wire and thus it has to be somewhat sturdy so the macramé does not slip off the wire armature.
I do think that with all the macramé and fusion (macramé( knots available it could have been a little better. I will give me
a more sound foundation to start with - so that is why it is just ok.

This is a very small book...that said, it is a great launching tool to inspire the macrame artist to incorporate wire into macrame designs. Of course, I would have like to see more examples and pages of instruction, but what was there was interesting and well presented.

I am very pleased with my purchase and am looking forward to trying many of the projects in this 'book'!! I didn't feel quite the same way about the first one ~ I used it mostly for inspiration. I love working with wire and ironically was thinking what a lovely 'marriage' that wire & micro-macrame would make, long before I saw Joan's 2nd micro-macrame book!

I LOVE the bangle cuff in this instruction manual ~ very creative and the ideas for selecting gorgeous color palettes are top notch, in my opinion! The earring projects in this book are more appealing to me than the ones featured in the first publication. I actually want to make them! Joan's work has a very Southwestern feel to it and since I live in Arizona, I share in the Southwestern passion but I also adore Victorian jewelry & would have to say it is my first love. The reason I mentioned this is because of a previous review comment. Every artist has their own style and just because this one isn't up your alley does not mean that it isn't good ~ different strokes for different folks (I hear a song coming on lol!) How about expanding your artistic horizons and dabbling in numerous styles? Personally, I love to do that :)

Bravo to you, Joan! You did a *wonderful* job on your second time around! I'm actually looking forward to your 3rd offering :) As for the price, Amazon has the BEST deal on this book ~ I didn't have to pay additional tax AND the shipping was free! There is plenty here to inspire & hold the attention of a macrame and/or wire enthusiast :)
