Once readers master the basic wire shapes, they will learn how to create finished pieces by incorporating fasteners, earring hooks and cording. When these basic building blocks are mastered, readers will learn how to embellish their designs with beads and more complex designs. Practice projects, step-by-step instructions and a gallery of designs will show readers just how easy it is to get started in this fun and rewarding craft.
