thanks to Gail Allen and Kathy Morris. Gail has provided editorial
comment on the books for a number of years, and Kathy has
designed and maintained my website. Both ladies have made
my life so much easier.
appreciate Suzanne Parish for providing me information on
a new source for keyless chucks. Also, thanks to Sandy Russell
for suggesting a new source for Swarovski
crystals. Information is included in the Suppliers
list on page iv.
in past years, I am thankful for the people who were willing
to share their designs with me. They include: Barbara Chadwick
(Bead Wrapped Bracelet), Wendy Davis (Tree of Life
Pendant), Jeanne Gegenheimer (Shirt Sleeve Pins), Jenn
(Jenn's Earrings), Karen Mason (Square Knot Earrings),
Carolyn Myers (Sculptured Collar), Suzanne Parish (Diamond
Shaped Earrings), Don Reed (Egyptian Earrings and Ladle
Earrings), Rowan Rose (Dale's Bail), and Sandy
Russell (Link Bracelet and Earrings with Crystal Beads).
designs in the book are either mine, or they are based on
classical or commercial jewelry pieces. However, all of the
procedures in this book were written and illustrated by me,
and the techniques described are ones I use in making jewelry.
