Modern and stylish, with glittering hints of color: how can jewelry that’s so easy to make be so elegant? These fabulous pieces use basic techniques, such as bending, wrapping, and making simple spirals, along with different types of wire that range from sterling silver to gold-filled copper. Guided by numerous photographs and easy-to-follow instructions, novice crafters can create simple flat shapes, move on to wrapped silhouettes, and then smoothly produce three-dimensional forms. The projects use commercially made chain, ribbon, or cording to showcase the variety of unique, one-of-a-kind wire shapes. A Selection of the Crafter's Choice Book Club.

I dont know if elegant is the word I would use to describe the projects in this book. Most of them were just plain weird I bought it elsewhere and still have it. I do look at it once in a while but I have never completed any of the projects and doubt that I ever will. Read full review

Not sure this is elegant. The title of this book is so misleading.
