Overview

Wire jewelry is one of the hottest trends in jewelry making. Wire Style, from the editor of Step by Step Wire Jewelry Magazine, is a collection of fifty contemporary, stylish, and absolutely wearable designs from an array of top designers in the field. Begin with a primer on basic tools and techniques for getting started, then launch right into chic, beautiful designs for bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and pendants handpicked from a collection of top jewelry designers. Each project features a comprehensive materials list and thorough step-by-step instructions, following in the footsteps of Stringing Style and Stringing Style 2. Fundamental wireworking techniques are explained in detail, including wire wrapping, weaving, coiling, chain making, hammering, texturing, and oxidizing.
