I recieved my copy , today. This is one of the best instructional books , I've ever read. Filled with info ,projects,beautiful photos!It covers all necessary information and more. I was thrilled to read about viking knitting.(Not very easy to find), it was in this book! I've never done a review before and i have many books.I highly recomend. Can't wait to read more from her.
The book begins with sections on materials such as Wire (different shapes, gauges, metals, hardness, etc.), tools (all the different kinds of pliers, etc.) and basic techniques (wrapping, hammering, loops, coils, etc.). I've never seen this next subject in any jewelry-making book before, and I think it's really helpful! The chapters are divided up into "Hammered Wire", "Wrapped Wire", Wire Filigree", "Wire Crochet", etc. The projects are beautiful. There are plenty of numbered written steps and plenty of clear, close-up photos to go with each step. This is wonderfully helpful. I highly recommend this book.
Very informative, and easy to follow instructions. Very happy with my purchases. Made a couple beautiful piieces with just a few changes from the original piece.
A good book on wirework. Loved the design on the front so had to get the book. Lots of great projects and techniques. I like the use of round wire where I would normally use square. I'm going to use more of the round in my designs too! The design on the the cover is still my favorite and easier than it looks. A good addition to your jewelry making library.
I'm a jewelry instructor and I teach classes in wire wrapping cabocoons. I found most of the wrappings to be over the hill (in other words) too overly designed. However, you may like that sort of thing. I'm more into practical designs. What I did with some of the ideas was to cut back on them. This took some design rethinking on paper. Not much though. I don't recommend this book for a beginner but more advance jewelry making. It will push your thinking outside the box though if you are seeking this.
AS A BEGINNER IN WIRE WRAPPING, MOST OF THESE PROJECTS ARE WELL OVER MY HEAD.BUT THE INSTRUCTIONS WITH THE GREAT PHOTOS AND USE OF THE PLIERS, MAKES THIS A GREAT INFORMATIVE BOOK IF ONLY FOR TECHNIQUE AT THIS TIME.PROBABLY THE BEST INSTRUCTIONAL PHOTOS I HAVE SEEN. AND I KNOW WITH PRACTICE AND TIME, I WILL DEFINITELY BE TRYING TO MAKE THESE PROJECTS.THIS BOOK, EVEN THO A GREAT INSPIRATION, IS MUCH BETTER BECAUSE OF THE TIME IT TOOK TO PHOTO THE INSTRUCTIONS WITH THE UP CLOSE WORK WITH THE PLIERS. IT HAS ALREADY BEEN A TREMENDOUS ASSIST AND I KNOW IT WILL BE TURNED TO OFTEN IN MY LIBRARY.NOT TO MENTION, I JUST LOVE LOOKING AT ALL THE GREAT WORKS.
The projects shown are very well done and the techniques are well explained. I would recommend this book for your Wire Jewelry Making library.
This book contains great advice and wonderful, FRESH ideas. It has projects for all skill levels. One of the best jewelry books I've seen.
