Overview

The Missing Link: From Basic to Beautiful Wirework Jewelry by Cindy Wimmer

Explore the most fundamental and versatile--yet overlooked--component of jewelry design–the wire link! Unlike many transient jewelry fads, it is one aspect of jewelry making that is consistent and relevant to nearly every style.

Get all the details of essential tools and wire techniques as well as a collection of 30 custom links and step-by-step illustrated instructions for creating them. Join a variety of contributors that have created 15 jewelry projects, each incorporating one or more of author Cindy Wimmer's links. You'll see how any single link holds limitless design and functional possibilities.

In addition to creating different links, Cindy will show you how to create different effects with the same link design by using or combining different colored wire, changing wire gauge, or changing the size of the link itself.

You can tell Cindy has put a great deal of thought, time and energy into writing this book for an interested wire worker. I just started wire working and have picked up 14 books along the way. This is the first book that shows and tells what a sandbag is and why it is needed. If you do your wirework at home it also helps with the noise. Cindy's book makes me feel like i'm in an actual class. The step by step instructions show an actual person performing each step and the written instructions match the illustration shown. The Contents show the level of difficulty as well as the instruction pages. That helps me steer away from the next level knowing I need to learn and practice the basic techniques before moving to the next level. The NOTE and TIPS written in almost all 15 projects makes this book more personable mentioning things she may have learned along the way and wants to share. Congratulations Cindy for a job well done!
