Book Review Stamped Metal Jewelry

I preordered Stamped Metal Jewelry from Interweave Press last March when I first heard that it was going to be published. I was familiar with Lisa Niven Kelly from her website, Beaducation so I was sure it was going to be good. I also wanted the book so I could have it on hand for my Stamped Metal Jewelry Class at the Thousand Islands Arts Center Class in July. I knew when I ordered it that the publication date was probably too late for the class and I was right. A few days after my class, it arrived in the mail. What a thrill. It is such a great book. Wonderful illustrations, great projects, crystal clear directions and wonderful tips from an artist who is very experienced in this craft. And to top it all off, the book comes with an instructional DVD. You can order this book from, from Beaducation and Interweave Press.  This is one you won't want to miss.
