    With this colorful book, Jamie and Sara set out to change the way you think about flexible beading wire. This book will surely inspire you to use colored wire as a main focus in your designs.

    The book begins with everything you need to know about the wire, findings, beads and tools used in this book, plus a special section written by Margie Deeb with 10 color palettes based on your emotions to help inspire you on your color journey. Why such focus on color? With colored wire, you are able to add another layer of color and beauty to you jewelry and well, color males you feel good!

    The chapters are organized by technique starting with stringing projects that have a burst of colored wire to enhance and compliment your beads. Next, you'll find illusion-style projects that really let color shine. Knitting spool projects follow and are sure to be one of your favorite sections - the designs aren't as difficult as they look and the results are simply stunning. Just when you think you have seen it all, Jamie and Sara show you how to create shapes using colored beading wire for sculptural jewelry designs. And finally, one of my favorite sections - braiding and weaving. In this chapter you'll find new twists on an age-old tradition. Simple braided beading wire is a beautiful way to infuse color and texture to any design.

    In this book, you'll find:

    30 new and colorful flexible beading wire projects
    Simple yet creative beading techniques
    Fun and fashionable designs
    Projects that are easy enough for beginners but still challenging and inspiring enough for a more experienced designer.
