The video that goes with the book is very well done. This book is not for a beginner, but for someone who has done some jewelry and is looking for ideas, and looking to learn new techniques. The designs are sophisticated and she advocates high quality work. Note: altho she makes doing pmc (precious metal clay) work sound easy, her list of equipment does not include the actual kiln and firing equipment needed.
