Publisher Comments:

A few simple tools, a host of readily available materials, and an assortment of easy to learn techniques: that's all you need to craft the most exquisite jewelry. The basics are effortless enough for a beginner to master, especially with these straightforward instructions, designer tips, and plentiful photographs. 75 dazzling pieces range from delicate and graceful to bold and chunky, and include necklaces, earrings, bracelets, pins, and more. Do you want something wonderful to wear for a special evening? Combine elegant lampwork beads with flattened copper wire links for an intricate, rococo piece. Are there some particularly beautiful beads you'd like to display? A Caged Bead Bracelet will showcase them spectacularly. For an intriguing hair clip, wrap lengths of colored wire around a thick dowel to create coils upon coils. Other beauties: an Angel Wings Necklace, Cleopatra's Choker, Copper Pins, and Filigree Earrings. With so many options, your only challenge will be deciding where to begin!

Synopsis:

These 75 stunning pieces of beaded and wire jewelry require only simple tools and techniques. Projects include earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and a contemporary eyeglass chain. Go delicate and graceful or bold and chunky, and use beads ranging from small, delicate crystals to large, brilliant turquoise. The new beaded, textured, or dyed wires lend a unique twist — but traditionalists will find plenty of copper, gold, and silver wire options.!

Synopsis:

“This inspiration-filled volume [has] instructions for more than 70 unique jewelry pieces from a diverse group of designers.
