Heavy ironwork meets
delicate filigree! Get a collection of 20+ beautiful wire projects and learn
exciting techniques for endless possibilities.
Inspired by the
ironwork so prevalent in her native Tucson, Jodi Bombardier fashions her
signature heavy gauge wire frames into sinuous shapes, cold-joining them with
fine wire to form open, lacy filigree patterns.
Jodi focuses on
technique, including the correct ways to use tools, hold wire, and create shaped
wire frames consistently and precisely. She teaches how to create airy pieces
that are still strong and stable enough to withstand daily wear. The projects
increase in complexity as the book progresses and the reader builds confidence
In addition to providing project instructions, Jodi
demonstrates how scrolled designs can be manipulated, joined, or rearranged to
create endless variations hampered only by the imagination.
