I love the author's work, and wanted to get a better feel for it so I could incorporate some of that earthiness into my jewelry. I'm not sure if I'll be imitating his work any time soon, but this book gives me a start. In the techniques section he shows how to do all the techniques used in the projects and accompanies the text with an abundance of clear photos. Some of the lesser known techniques he covers are Faux Bone, "inlaid" polymer clay, concrete, paper clay. He also reviews the customary metalworking techniques. The projects are much simpler than his own work, but one must walk before he can run, and there are plenty of great photos of a variety of artist to inspire the reader to forge ahead toward competence.

A very usable and practical book.

I just received my copy of this book today and couldn't wait to review it. First of all, the design of it is very professional. There is no guessing as to what you are seeing. The photos are stepped out and very clear. The projects are so interesting that I may even try a few. I originally bought the book because I was searching for a good book on cold connections. There is really nothing out there except a book by Susan Lennert Kazmer which is too poorly designed to be of any use.

The links and connections Robert teaches in this book are well beyond just rivets and jump rings, although they are in there as well and in easy to understand words and photos. Plus he has a wonderful philosophy behind his designs that comes out in the language of the book in a most interesting and thoughtful way.

If you are looking for a great book on cold connections and jewelry making in general, this book will be an asset to your jewelry book library.

I enjoyed this book as Robert is a master at teaching techniques. The illustrations in his book were a great inspiration to me and many others that purchased this book. I appreciate that Roberts presentation for duplicating all of his creations he gives you permission to copy his work while giving you the knowledge and inspiration to create you own pieces that captures you own personal memories.

I have several of Roberts DVD's and watched him several times on Craftcast. I will repeat what I said earlier that Robert is a Master at teaching so this book is a wonderful reference book for any artist's library.

This is a very interesting and informative book. I read some of the reviews, which were not too positive, but ordered the book anyway because it looked like it had what I needed. I wanted to learn about talismans & amulets and how to create them for myself & help others create them as well. This book certainly fit the bill.
Some people found that the talismans & amulets were simple and complained that they were made with found objects. Isn't that the idea? A "lucky charm" (talisman or amulet) doesn't have to be something you've spent a fortune on--it can be a beat up item you found as a kid that feels "right" for you.
I make jewelry & this was very helpful in many aspects, both in how to create a piece and how to personalize items.
If you want to learn about talismans & amulets, this is an excellent source. It's a good place to start learning how to make your own.
I'm glad I decided to order it!

What can I say? WOW! I'm new to jewelry making, so maybe I'm not the most sophisticated judge of what a great book on jewelry is, but I am an avid crafter and artist who loves to create my own wearable art. I have a library of thousands [truly, just ask Amazon] of how-to books that I continually use for reference on specific projects and can see that this book will have a long shelf life -- both as a learning tool and as an inspiration. Kudos to Robert Dancik for his clear and concise instruction, resource listing, and most importantly his beautiful examples of work. Many books on the market today have decent instructions, but Robert's book is one of that rare breed that is willing to showcase outstanding examples of high quality art and craft. I couldn't ask for more...unless it is another book.

I really love mixed media jewelry, and this book stands out as a favorite in my collection of books. Robert's book is very clear and thorough in the detailed pictures and directions, reflecting his extensive expertise as a classroom teacher. There are quite a few wonderful books in this genre, using mixed media, cold connections and resins. But if I had to keep only one, it would be this one because of the variety of projects and the quality of the instruction.
PS - If you ever get the chance to take a class with Robert Dancik, jump on it! He is an excellent and thoroughly enjoyable teacher who is generous with his time, talent, and knowledge.

This is a beautiful book by a master craftsman. I love books like this, and could not wait to get a paper copy, so I ordered the Kindle version for iPad. Shame on the publisher! The images are all *low resolution* so you cannot zoom in to enjoy the lovely examples! I have purchased a number of craft or cooking books for iPad (Kindle) and they have high resolution images so that you can zoom in to the beautiful images, a huge part of a book like this. Also, there is no index in the electronic version. Very disappointed. The author should be aware this is damaging to his book sales, and ask the publisher to produce a full quality digital version.
The things are cool and all, but there is no connection to what makes something a amulet or a talisman. It is missing the magic or at least the intent.
