Wire wrapping is great, but are you ready to go beyond that? Wire lovers of all skill levels will have something to cheer about with Weave Wrap Coil, written by Jodi Bombardier and published by Interweave Press. Even if you are a complete beginner, Jodi's book has a good fundamentals and techniques section that will bring you up to speed. After some practice with inexpensive wire, you'll be ready to pick from many beautiful projects.
There are three main sections to the book. The first covers Beginner Projects, nine in all. They are strikingly beautiful, and will let you practice and master the basics. The second section has the Intermediate Projects, where my very favorite piece in the whole book resides. It's called the Sublime Dreams Bracelet, and is pictured below. For these projects, you'll need some experience with basic weaving and coiling, which of course you can get by mastering the Beginner Projects!
