With a coil, braid, and twist, plus other ingeniously easy techniques, these magnificent silver bracelets, necklaces, and earrings take lovely shape. Each of the 99 projects, illustrated with color photos and diagrams, shows exactly why wire jewelry has become today's hot craft. All that's needed are very basic tools and this helpful advice on making coils, plying wires, stretching out the coils to form graceful waves, joining rings to make elegant chains, fashioning wire into figure eights, incorporating beads, or creating crocheted adornments. Pretty earrings come in a delicate teardrop or corkscrew style, a flat braided necklace has a unique, oxidized finish, and the traditional chain mail bracelet features freshwater pearls. Every piece in this handsome collection is graded for difficulty. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.
