Explore two popular trends: wireworking and eBooks! With the Totally Twisted easy-to-download eBook, you’ll discover wireworking, one of the hottest trends in jewelry. However, all-wire jewelry can be monochromatic and the cost of silver may put all-silver-wire jewelry out of the reach of many. Wire and lampwork artist Kerry Bogert creates her signature colorful wire jewelry by combining sterling silver and colored wire with glass beads to add a pop of color in designs from elegant to whimsical.

Although in the past colored wire has been considered less sophisticated, Totally Twisted shows you how to use colored wire for a high-end look. In addition to her signature lampwork beads, Kerry uses Czech and other glass beads to show how glass and wire can be combined to great effect.

Accompanying the designs for earrings, bracelets, and necklaces, Totally Twisted includes wirework tips and tricks to make wirework easier and more successful. Learn how to make your own clasps and wire components along with techniques from coiling to wire wrapping all shown in clear step-by-step photography. A master of color in jewelry, Kerry also shares her design tips for exploring color in jewelry design, plus gives project variation ideas to show how changing the colors in the same design can completely transform a piece. Take your wireworking to new levels with the Totally Twisted eBook!

“I use wire a lot in my own jewelry designs,  but I'm not always fond of typical wire wrapping designs.  They can tend to be a little too chunky for my taste.  I was pleasantly surprised by the scale, and in some cases, elegance of the projects in this book.” - Tammy Powley, Guide to Jewelry Making
“I highly recommend it!” – Art Bead Scene
"The designs in this book are bright, colorful and bold.  Made with classic wireworking techniques, like coiling and spirals, the jewelry is fresh and fun.” – BellaOnline’s Beadwork Editor

Totally Awesome! Review by Marty

I was blown away with the variety of projects in this book. Great beginning with easy directions for findings, which helped me to modify my techniques and was more time efficient. Love the ideas and techniques for making a variety of chain. Can't wait to have completed every project in this book.

Totally Twisted Review by Joan Fedus

I liked this book because the projects were colorful, contemporary and relatively easy to make, in a style I enjoy. The close up photos of the steps were straightforward, clear and a cinch to follow. I will use it for ideas and techniques because I always like to put my own spin on the projects. I downloaded the book in e-book format (my first e-book). It was fast, easy and efficient. Also takes up less space. 4 1/2 STARS
