|If you're a beginning or intermediate wire-worker, you'll treasure Marlize Kasselman's "Exquisite Wire Wrapping Tutorials". |
The five jewelry projects in this book are eye-catching and stylish. My favorite is the daintily rustic "Conical Wrap Briolette Necklace".
Although the projects may look intricate, they're really very do-able - especially with Marlize's excellent photos and instructions to guide you.
One of the things I especially love about "Exquisite Wire Wrapping Tutorials" is the abundance of clear, gorgeous photos. Unlike many jewelry-making books I've used, Marlize's detailed photos and step-by-step instructions never leave you hanging. She clearly shows and tells exactly what your fingers, your tools, and your wire should be doing at all times, every step of the way.
In addition to the tutorials, this book has a lot of other useful information. There's a well-illustrated section on wire-working tools; a guide to wire gauges, hardness, and types; and an easy guide to oxidizing your jewelry if you'd like to give your creations additional interest and depth.
If you're a wire-worker (or are interested in experimenting with wire jewelry), I highly recommend "Exquisite Wire Wrapping Tutorials". It's a beautiful book with great, easy-to-follow projects and useful reference materials.
And of course, after you make the projects in Marlize's tutorials, you'll know some artistic new wire techniques to use in your own unique jewelry creations.
