Crocheters, knitters, beaders, and wireworkers alike will relish this innovative approach to creating necklaces, earrings, and bracelets (some in sets), quirky boxes, and delicate but functional baskets. Those new to crochet receive a chapter on basic crochet techniques including how to get started, finishing off, tube crocheting, adding new wire, and planning projects-all presented with plenty of illustrations. Nancie M. Wiseman, author of Knitting with Wire, also discusses which crochet hooks to use, the tools required, and how to choose the wire gauge to suit the project. A creative collection of 30 projects, presented with clear instructions and beautiful photographs, includes jewelry sets such as a bead encrusted necklace and bracelet; silver and crystals necklace, bracelet, and earrings; as well as several charming box and basket projects. Also included are beading charts and a resource guide. Crocheting with wire instead of yarn adds a fun and exciting dimension to this time-honored craft.
