In arenas from the streets Manhattan's East Village to the nightspots of Hollywood, wearing brightly colored wire jewelry has become a way of making a style statement without breaking the bank. This 320-page illustrated guide teaches jewelers and hobbyists the wire-working techniques required to make the book's thirty projects. Live Wire Jewelry is a valuable book because it combines technical information, aesthetic input, and suggestions about color combinations and accessories. Editor's recommendation.
