Overview

Making Bead and Wire Jewelry sold more than 67,500 copies—and because one great success deserves another, here’s a second chic collection featuring the very best in contemporary design.

Created by today’s finest artisans, these pieces all showcase the incredible diversity of interesting beads and wire types available today. The photographs alone will have beaders and jewelry makers sighing with delight: from Marinda Stewart’s glistening coppery pink flower pin to Eni Oken’s exotic “Bollywood Dreams” earrings, everything’s simply stunning. Plus, they’re all easy to make, because no soldering’s required, just basic wire shaping! Fashion pearly, spiraly post earrings; the gleaming amber “trapped in honey” pendant; a rajah bangle that recalls the jingling ankle bracelets from India (but with beads instead of bells), and other beautiful jewels.

A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wire jewelry making is very popular with beaders and other crafters because it requires only a few tools and minimal practice to produce attractive pieces. These three books utilize numerous bead types and offer step-by-step projects for making earrings, necklaces, and brooches. While all feature color illustrations of the finished pieces, fiber artist Hettmansperger's Fabulous Woven and wire jewelry workshop instructor Jones's Making Colorful provide color photos of individual steps. Additionally, Hettmansperger's book shows how to use fiber and basketry materials and techniques to create embellished pouch pendants with a primitive, ethnic flavor. All three books would make prudent additions to public library craft collections. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
