Wire - easy to buy, easy to use, easy to experiment with, and when you use it like this, creates a look that is complex enough to gather compliments. This is not your grandmother's wire work. That said, the steps and photos do take a few liberties with some of the steps, meaning that sometimes you have to wrap, twist, and take a leap of faith. Perhaps not the best book to start with, more for the intermediate person. However, whether you use fine silver wire or copper, you will be able to create artistic and unique necklaces, pendants, earrings, and cuffs you'll be proud to wear with the projects in Inventive Wire Weaving. Each project does include beautifully clear photos, and instructions.
- Styles range from delicate and feminine to bold and unusual.
- Many projects include variations for even more personalization.
- Techniques include wire weaving, wrapping, coiling, and capturing, plus texturing metals and wire.
- Beautiful jewelry showcases metal, beads, lampworked elements, cabochons, and found objects.
