Compiled with advanced beginners and intermediate designers in mind, this guidebook starts with the basics of wire wrapping and builds skills progressively as aspiring crafters work through each project. The easy-to-follow instructions emphasize safety first and list all the steps required to get started, with a detailed discussion given to using tools such as pliers and wire cutters--wire wrapping does not require a soldering torch--and selecting appropriate materials such as copper, brass, and sterling silver. Finishing these stunning projects are a snap with the tips, tricks, and techniques shared within--jewelry crafters will delight in the resulting pieces that include beautiful bracelets, Celtic earrings, wire wrapped rings, and a wire-wrapped cabochon.

This book is an excellent source for wire wrapping for bracelets and other great projects. I have enjoyed the easy and detailed instructions. It is not for the novice but for persons who have had some experience with wire wrapping. This book has really good step by step pictures and easy to understand instructions.

If you have square wire and never started wire-wrapping because it is intimidating..this book is perfect. If you follow the designs in this book - you will be making bracelets like a pro; as you work through it you start adding your own ideas and designs. I wish I had purchased this book first. Anything else that these authors put out ..I will buy

I loved this! She tells you the tools that will work and which ones that will work best. She went through not only the different hardness levels of the wire but also the different shapes and their best uses. I think this is the first book to cover the uses for half-pound and square wire. The direction are easy to follow on the projects. Once I made a few of the projects I was able to start making my own designs and the finished peice turned out exactly the way I planned them. The projects start at a beginners level and you can build your skills as you work your way through the projects!
