Ever since she was a child Janet Evans had an appreciation for jewelry especially those that are hand crafted and not commercially manufactured. This led her to try to find out as much as she could about jewelry making until it got to a point where she made the decision to try her hand at it. After trying out one method she found that she was driven to do further research to perfect her craft. As this was a hobby for her the progress was slow but she did get through it all and found that by combining a number of techniques from different jewelry making guides, she was able to produce jewelry that she not only liked but could sell as well to make some extra cash. She also saw the need to put some sort of text together that would more advanced than a very basic outline of how to create jewelry but not as complex as the more advanced texts that can be found on the market today. Janet was interested in creating a text that would be easy to understand and also provide a bit more than just the mere basics. What she has presented is what she has tried herself.
