I started out loving the book Beautiful Wire Jewelry for Beaders: Creative Wirework Projects for All Levels. I love the way it is organized. The introductory chapters are well documented, thorough but not overly detailed. There are beautiful pictures of the jewelry projects throughout the book - and the author has a fantastic sense of color. But, when it came time to choose a project - I didn't feel excited about choosing any of them.
Beginner Jewelry Projects
Appropriately enough, I started at the beginning. The pictures look great, but the actual projects just didn't grab me. There is not a single beginner project that I wanted to try making. And it took me a while to figure out why - but I figured it out!
