Well, this little labor of love, Best Wire Jewelry Making Books, has expanded far beyond my original concept. While I originally thought I'd review a handful of my favorite wire jewelry how-to books, the more I've focused on this, the more wonderful books and instructions I discover.

I've also been very surprised at the amount of traffic this site has generated in just a few short months. I believe that means that folks are getting something here and maybe the book reviews are helping direct their book purchases more effectively. That was my purpose. Having bought many books myself that ended up being disappointing, I really wanted to see if I couldn't help others avoid that same experience. In any event, I also wanted to give you all the opportunity to comment or let me know if this site has been helpful to you. So please, feel free to leave any comments or suggest any new books you'd like reviewed.

While much of what I do necessarily focuses on making a living, this site is not about that but rather just enjoyment. It gives me alot of pleasure to work on this site and I've learned from doing these in-depth book reviews. Since I only review the best books I can find, this is a pretty positive experience.

Finally, another surprise associated with this website is that I'm now constantly looking for new and exciting wire jewelry or other jewelry making instructions for you. So you may see some rather unusual jewelry making instructional materials coming up. My latest is the fork jewelry DVD I just discovered but I've also found some interesting books on selling your jewelry that I'll be getting put up shortly.

Be sure to fill in the contact form (on the right near the top) with your email address if you'd like to receive some of my free wire jewelry tutorials and stay tuned for my newest discoveries in making wire jewelry!
