If you're going to learn to work with wire, practicing by making classic elegant designs is just plain smart. They are classic for a reason...and you will learn all the basic skills needed to handle future wire projects with finesse! In the most recent addition to Kalmbach's Absolute Beginners Guide series, readers will learn about wire types, tools, findings, and a lot more.
Martine Callaghan has put together 28 beautiful projects in Making Wire Jewelry which will teach you all the basics and will leave you with a closet full of beautiful new adornments. Even though I've been turning wire loops and spirals for more years than I care to admit, I am really impressed by how perfectly beautiful Martine's are, mixed with just the perfect beads and pendants. Great projects, wicked versatile techniques, the usual easy-to-follow instructions that you expect from Kalmbach.
