Jewelry Studio:
Wire Wrapping
by Linda Chandler and Christine Ritchey

Wire is a favorite design material for jewelry artists, allowing for the creation of simple loops and embellishments to more involved, intricate pieces. In Jewelry Studio: Wire Wrapping, Linda Chandler and Christine Ritchey take the mystery out of wire wrapping and share their insider secrets for making gorgeous jewelry from bundles of joined wire, no soldering required! This technique allows the jewelry maker to create timeless, elegant pieces that are beautifully simple to elaborately complex.

Starting with a discussion of safety, tools and materials-including the types of metals appropriate for wire wrapping-and helpful tips, tricks, and techniques necessary before beginning a first project, the authors cover all of the basics of deceptively simple techniques.

Using detailed process photography, Jewelry Studio: Wire Wrapping shows all the basics of wire wrapping, step by step, then takes the reader through progressive skill-building projects to teach a range of wrapping techniques.

Projects include bracelets, earrings, pins, a ring, and wire wrapped pendants and also include instructions for the highly sought-after wire-wrapped cabochon. Before you know it you'll be creating an elegant bow tie bracelet, a celtic link bracelet with matching earrings, a wire wrapped ring, a beautiful bracelet with coils, and more!

Highly detailed book with complete, step-by-step instructions.
