Woven Wire Jewelry
by Linda Chandler and Christine Ritchey
Interweave Press, 2004 & 2005

Gold and silver wire skillfully woven into gentle yet substantial forms add dimension and refinement to your handcrafted jewelry. Designer Linda Chandler, along with one of her best students, Christine Ritchey, introduce a new wire weaving technique that varies the number of wires and their thickness to create stunningly beautiful bracelets, neckpieces, and pendants.

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, a woven neckpiece, and a pendant with a woven frame.

Projects range in difficulty from easy to advanced, and many projects can be completed without soldering (though knowledge of soldering is a plus). The more experienced craftsperson will savor the way Precious Metal Clay™ adds striking embellishments to four of the projects. And to help you develop your own designs, there's a full-color gallery of finished work to inspire and spark your imagination.

Highly detailed book with complete, step-by-step instructions and hundreds of photographs.

Nine projects; soft cover; 136 pages; full color.
