Using only a few simple tools, a spool of wire, and a sprinkling of beads, you can create your own stunning pieces of jewelry. You don't need any previous experience working with wire or jewelry-making to be able to create the 35 projects in this book. Making Colorful Wire & Beaded Jewelry is your personal guide, full of creative ideas for beginners and experienced crafters alike.
Because wire is so flexible and adaptable, it lends itself to being twisted, spiraled, wrapped, and formed into an unlimited variety of shapes and styles. The projects featured in this book are varied, to appeal to all tastes and ages, and you can easily adapt them. They range from chokers and necklaces, to bracelets and bangles and rings.
The chapters include smart and sophisticated gold and silver wire designs ideal for special occasions or to accompany the classic little black dress, plus more casual designs made with colored wire, funky beads, and tiny seashells, perfect for weekend wear with jeans and a crisp linen shirt.
