Description

Wire is a wonderful material for making jewellery: versatile, forgiving of beginners, and available in a variety of shapes, sizes and colours. This book shows you how to combine wire with other materials such as crystals, beads, stones, leather and cords; as well as how to exploit wire's manipulative qualities to wrap, bend, form, twist, weave, knot and knit.

Content includes an extensive directory of jig patterns, organised into theme and shown as made-up samples, as well as numbered pattern diagrams so you can reproduce the designs at home in the wire of your choice.

Professional jewellery designer and teacher Wing Mun Devenney is known for her beautiful contemporary pieces and is the author of The Art of Soldering for Jewellery Makers (Search Press, September 2013).

At a first flick through this book i was impressed with the amount of photos showing step by step instructions. Very clear and accompanied by good instructions as well. It is definitely what I would call a technique heavy book. They include freeform wiring, using a jig, using a coil maker, macrame, making a chain etc... At the back of the book there is a template directory for jig and freeform wire patterns. This is a nice addition, though again I'm not sure if some of the patterns, for example why anyone would wnat to make a wire envelope shape, but I guess its just because you can! Would be a great book for anyone who wanted to start a journey into wirework jewellery. I think its the best book technique wise that I have seen, don't let the slightly weird projects put you off!
