I hate books like this. It says rivet in the title. There is a project that uses commercial rivets instead of the wire rivets usually explained in jewelry books. But when you get the book home and examine the project in detail, you find out that she just skips the rivet step altogether. Nor is there a source for parts. So I don't know what kind of rivets she used and whether she hammered them herself or used a rivet gun.

That said, there are some really interesting projects in the book that seem to be described in enough detail to do them, though I suspect many of them will require more steps than are depicted or more help (like epoxy and soldering) than is shown.

Buyer beware. ( )

Beautiful inspiration book for cold connections in metal jewelry making for the torch-challenged artisan. Original and funky design projects are well illustrated and often with different metals. The designs are rather like art pieces .Techniques covered include wire wrapping, stitching, weaving - all with wire. She uses a sharpened sxrewdriver to punch holes!! ( )
