Publisher Comments:

Weaving Freeform Wire Jewelry is a guide to understanding and using wire weaves to create 20 beautiful freeform jewelry projects. With a tight focus on five wire weaves—over-under, over-over, coiling, looping, and circular weaving — the reader will learn by making rings, pins, earrings, pendants, clasps, and bracelets. Author Kaska Firor offers a wonderful variety of symmetrical and asymmetrical designs to inspire the budding wireworker, in addition to showing the evolution of wirework design from simple to complex for more advanced jewelry-makers.
