Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you like to wear stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry? Can you bend wire? Then prepare for a bevy of compliments as you learn wire weaving techniques from experts Linda Chandler--a jewelry designer and teacher with more than 20 years of experience--and her star student Christine Ritchey. This dynamic duo teaches how to skillfully weave gold and silver wire into sinuous and modern necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and rings. A section on creating beads and jewelry with Precious Metal Clay--clay that turns to silver upon baking--will surprise and inspire. Eleventh in the "Beadwork How-To Series, "Woven Wire Jewelry features a breathtaking photo gallery to inspire the imagination. A great resource for wire artists and jewelry makers.

Synopsis:

A new wire weaving technique that varies the number of wires and their thickness to create stunningly beautiful bracelets, necklaces, and pendants is introduced in this guide. Project instructions go well beyond simple line drawings to show the assembly process of each piece in a series of step-by-step photographs. The nine projects begin with an elegantly simple woven bracelet and move on to more dramatic projects that include a domed cuff bracelet with soldered bead ends, a free-form bracelet, a woven neck piece, and a pendant with a woven frame. Projects range in difficulty from easy to advanced, and many can be completed without soldering. The more experienced craftsperson will savor the way Precious Metal Clay adds striking embellishments to three of the projects.

Synopsis:

A selection of the Crafter's Choice Book Club, this book shows how to weave gold and silver wire into handcrafted jewelry. 410 color photos.
