SUMMARY- You get a lot of different techniques to try and some interesting projects - many of which have useful applications as well as decorative. One thing really bugged me, though. She had a photo of herself holding a small bead in her fingers and applying a drill to it to make the hole. I've got to wonder how many trips to the emergency room that photo has engendered. NEVER hold small objects with your fingers when applying a power tool's business end to it. If it's fragile, put some bandaids on your pliers!
