Review:

Lots of books about jewelry making focus on beads, but there is a lot more to wire than making a jump ring or closing a fastening. Here is a whole book about manipulating wire and making it the focus of a project; you can discover that working with wire is a whole hobby in itself. Of course, this also means that it has a plethora of items associated with it, so if you are not wishing to embark on an extension to making jewelry then this book might not be for you. If, however, you are up for a challenge and are keen to purchase things such as mandrels, stepped forming pliers, liver of sulphate and a rotary tumbler then this book certainly has some of the best projects I ve seen anywhere. There are some truly stunning pieces in here, showcasing the arcane delights of wire work, and because they have been created by a number of different designers there is no danger of not liking the author s style. There are some instructions, too, on making the various loops, spirals and other shapes, but if you are looking for staged instructions illustrated with photographs for the projects you had better look elsewhere. I see this as a book for improvers rather than beginners, people who have worked with wire a bit before and are ready to embark on some more challenging projects. Total tyros would do better to come back to this book when they have worked through the basics, but for anybody looking for a book of wirework jewelry projects this is the goods. --MyShelf.com

Book Description:

Featuring original ideas from top jewelry designers, this collection covers a range of contemporary and stylish projects, such as bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and pendants. Beginning with a primer on basic tools and techniques and covering fundamental wire-working skills in detail, including wire-wrapping, weaving, coiling, chain-making, hammering, texturing, and oxidizing, this guide helps jewelry makers of all skills levels develop a range of talents. Each project includes a comprehensive materials list and step-by-step instructions that guide crafters through a variety of projects, including wrapping found objects with wire, making chain mail, creating spirals, straightening wire, making jump rings and ear wires, and creating clasps. Constructed with many different materials--from precious metals to plated and colored wire--these striking creations are a mix of funky and fabulous wire designs combined with stones, beads, and cords to create an interesting and eclectic jewelry collection.
