Overview

Crocheting takes on a new dimension in this fun and creative collection of 30 stunning yet easy-to-make necklaces, earrings, and bracelets—all made using wire. Those new to crochet will get all the basics of crocheting, including finishing off, adding new wire, and planning projects—with plenty of illustrations throughout for guidance. There is also a discussion of which crochet hooks to use, and how to choose the right wire gauge to suit any project. Most of the projects are simple, requiring single crochet, half-double crochet, and double crochet in the same basic patterns used in yarn crochet. Beaders will delight over a new way to play with beads, and seasoned crocheters will relish this fresh, innovative approach to a time-honored, favorite technique.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Nancie takes the craft to a new dimension with wire, beads, and cool design for jewelry, baskets, and more." - Better Homes & Gardens Simply Creative Crochet

"Combine crocheted wire and beads to make artfully squiggly jewelry." - Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Library Journal
Anyone who attempted to crochet with thick hardware store wire before the advent of the small-gauge colored copper craft wire probably didn't get too far without some type of repetitive stress injury-and certainly didn't have much fun in the process. With this small book, Wiseman (Knitting with Wire) helps make the transition to wire crochet painless and fun. She discusses types of wire and necessary tools as well as how to choose the appropriate wire gauge for any project. Included are 30 projects with complete instructions for earrings, bracelets, necklaces, and baskets. Most of the projects require only simple crochet stitches, and all projects are graded by skill level. A good choice for public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
