Comments: Take one ball make some accessories and you might get this book, there are some unusual stuff here, like the hand jewelry or Panja and the earrings and necklace, the stuff isn't very edgy but is quite classical, the kind of book that could sit on your shelf until you had that oddball looking for a project.
Buy/Borrow: I'd take a look at it and see if you like it, I liked some of the projects but it's nothing I don't already have really. If I had come across it earlier in my career I might have gone for it.
