SUMMARY- This is a book of jewelry projects, as shown in color collage on the front and back covers. You get a well detailed diagram and some written instruction(but not a full pattern written as notation). There are no other sample photos other than the color photos on the covers - and I think that actually hurts this book in particular. I had to do serious hunting to match cover sample with diagrams. It could have just been that I'm tired right now - remember, your mileage may vary. It would have been helpful if she'd included the type of jewelry in her title name to help the tatter match up the project instructions with the cover photo. The cover photos show how the project can be used, but doesn't show well for figuring out construction. Still, some great designs - I really like Ms. Brigg's work. Instructions are written in English, but diagrams make the book accessible to anyone!
