The cover promise "clever jewellry designs featuring everyday components" fooled me into thinking the projects would use common or easily found objects in ususual ways. The book actually uses bead store findings (the bits and pieces used to complete a jewellry project, like end caps, clasps and crimps) as jewellry components replacing or equal to beads. The only non-bead store component involved was hardware store washers.

The jewellry projects have detailed material lists (often more than 10 different items required) with step-by-step instructions. Some alternate designs are included. Even though instructions were clear, I wished there were more or better pictures to illustrate some steps in order to know exactly was was meant. This was most problematic when multiple objects were layered to create a focal piece, but only the completed component was photographed rather than the individual pieces.
