Publisher Comments:

The basics of using beads and wire to create custom pieces Each technique carefully described and illustrated Create pieces for yourself and friends, or to sell

This fully illustrated guide shows how to make all kinds of funky and elegant bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and pendants using beads and wire. It begins with the basics--planning a design, attaching fittings, making secure crimps, selecting beads--so crafters can quickly get started creating one-of-a-kind pieces. Simple wire-bending techniques allow them to make beaded drop earrings as well as more elaborate necklace and bracelet designs. Advanced techniques use metallic, sterling silver, even 14-carat-gold wire to make gallery-quality jewelry in almost any style and size. Featuring design ideas by a variety of jewelers, this book includes pictures and descriptions of tools and materials, a guide to common types of beads, advice on proper lengths and fit, and inspiration for creating a wide range of styles.

Synopsis:

No matter how elaborate it might seem, most of the beaded jewelry you see in shops and galleries is created using a relatively small set of simple techniques. Basic Jewelry Making contains everything you need to know to start creating attractive jewelry on your own, the tools and equipment, the fundamental skills, and the methods you can use to achieve a variety of styles and effects. Each of the book's projects teaches a new technique with full-color illustrations and precise instructions, moving step by step for maximum clarity. Together, these skills provide the foundation for taking on more ambitious pieces in the future, the beginning of an immensely rewarding and potentially profitable craft.
