Modern and stylish, with glittering hints of color: how can jewelry thats so easy to make be so elegant? These fabulous pieces use basic techniques, such as bending, wrapping, and making simple spirals, along with different types of wire that range from sterling silver to gold-filled copper. Guided by numerous photographs and easy-to-follow instructions, novice crafters can create simple flat shapes, move on to wrapped silhouettes, and then smoothly produce three-dimensional forms. The projects use commercially made chain, ribbon, or cording to showcase the variety of unique, one-of-a-kind wire shapes.
