Overview

Discover all you need to know to make stunning wire jewelry in Wire Art Jewelry Workshop. Through best-selling author and designer Sharilyn Miller's clear explanations and step-by-step photography, you'll learn expert techniques to making jewelry that is truly a work of art.

Wire Art Jewelry Workshop is a comprehensive guide, filled with the basic building blocks of wire jewelry. From cleaning, straightening, twisting, and coiling wire to cage beads, heart-shaped ear wires and head pins, as well as bead connectors, Wire Art Jewelry Workshop teaches how to make solid findings and custom components. You'll then learn to combine these components into 16 original wire bracelet, earring, and necklace designs. Sharilyn's detailed instruction continues through the projects showing every step, from plain wire to finished piece. The projects can be made with classic silver or less-expensive copper wire to match your taste and budget.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book is written in an easy to read style. Each project has a small paragraph to introduce it, and finishes with suggestions for different options. You feel Sharilyn is talking just to you. In fact, if I met her I would feel like I know her already. The projects all look fabulously detailed, but she takes you through each one in simple steps to completion. There is a wealth of information in this book. The pages are well set out and easy on the eye. It is probably aimed at the beginner, but even as a more experienced wireworker I still found the book stimulating, motivating and useful." - Rachel Warren, Bead Society of Great Britain
