“This book is written in an easy to read style. Each project has a small paragraph to introduce it, and finishes with suggestions for different options. You feel Sharilyn is talking just to you. In fact, if I met her I would feel like I know her already. The projects all look fabulously detailed, but she takes you through each one in simple steps to completion. There is a wealth of information in this book. The pages are well set out and easy on the eye. It is probably aimed at the beginner, but even as a more experienced wireworker I still found the book stimulating, motivating and useful.” – Rachel Warren, Bead Society of Great Britain“You’ll learn expert techniques to making jewelry that is truly a work of art.” – MonstersandCritics.com
