About the Author

Chris Franchetti Michaels is a writer and jewelry artisan specializing in beaded designs, wirework, and metal fabrication. She has written extensively about jewelry and jewelry making on the Internet since 2003, and she is the author of Beading VISUAL Quick Tips, Wire Jewelry VISUAL Quick Tips, and Teach Yourself VISUALLY Beadwork. Chris has also appeared on several episodes of the DIY Network television show Jewelry Making, and her designs have been featured in popular jewelry project books. Visit her website BeadJewelry.net for more help and inspiration.

Thorough charts detail everything from the common lengths for various styles and sizes of necklaces (both men's and women's), bracelets, and anklets to common finishing methods used for different stringing materials. Photos clearly display techniques for knotting strings, creating eyepins and headpins (not to mention clasps), and making your own Byzantine chain from jump rings. Wire gauge is demonstrated visually, with an image of each gauge's thickness, and with examples of what each gauge is used for.

The book goes through bead-stringing techniques; wire-work; bead-weaving (by hand and on a loom) and even macrame. If you truly want to delve into beaded jewelry as more than just a way to make a few pieces for yourself, then I highly recommend grabbing a copy of Michaels's book. It's extremely valuable and highly instructional. The use of brief, clear instructions combined with a ton of tables and photographs make it a quick read that teaches you an incredible amount of material. It's also a fantastic quick-reference book for use while making your creations.

This book is really great for telling you everything that you wanted to know about jewelry making of all types from wirework, to bead weaving, to macrame. It gives you the little details that other books leave out and answers all of the questions you may have. There are step-by-step pictures of each technique, so you don't have to "guess" at how something is done. I think that every jewelry creator should have this book on their shelf, especially if you are just learning.

I chose this book over others because it had chapters on both beginning techniques as well as more intermediate ones once you had mastered that. I also liked that it combined bead stringing, bead weaving and wire work all in one resource. Project ideas are provided but not as many as you might find in other books - just something to know depending on what you are looking for.

I bought this book for my sister-in-law as she was interested in starting a new hobby. I've made jewelry for years, and although I'm no expert I thought I was pretty knowledgeable. This book is so packed with information that i had to order a copy for myself. It's invaluable to any crafts library. The pictures and directions are clean and concise. It covers every type of jewelry making technique you could think of.
A definite must have.
