If you have a bit of a wild streak, but your insistence on impeccably designed and properly constructed jewelry holds strong, you will love this new book by Eva M. Sherman. As everyone knows, copper is a wonderful metal to work with, especially when you learn from a teacher like this author! It is indeed extremely hip looking. And as the author says in her introduction, "The warmth and economy that copper offers are just a couple of reasons I love working with this versatile metal. As an added bonus, all of these cuffs can be made in silver or brass, or any other combination of non-ferrous metals.The myriad combinations are left only to the reader's imagination." Very true!This book begins with a Basics section, which covers metals and tools you will require for the projects. It continues with a really nice Techniques section which has everything you will need to know to use this book properly (and to go on to use other books or to make your own projects).Then come three chapters of full-on artwork cuffs, each chapter covering a different type.Chapter 1 concerns "Wire Cuffs". There are eight of them. I think you can get an idea of the charm and brilliance of the author by the titles of some of the cuffs, for example: "The Perfect Storm", "Gypsy Woman", and "Calder Cuff". The "Perfect Storm" is going to begin your love affair with Cool Copper Cuffs right off the bat. As the description says, "Create consistency out of chaos with a freeform wire-wrapping technique! This design leave a lot of room for interpretation." This gorgeous cuff has a large oval focal bead with copper wire encircling it.
