- In stock online
Wire jewelry enthusiasts are always looking for innovative ways to manipulate wire. This book showcases projects featuring weaving, coiling, wrapping, texturing, forging, and filing combined in unique ways. With a key emphasis on wire weaving as the signature technique, and using both silver and copper wire, Weave, Wrap & Coil offers a strong follow up to Interweave's bestselling Woven Wire Jewelry, with contemporary projects that will appeal to new and experienced wireworkers alike.
The book will begin with a technique section covering the basics of weaving, coiling, wrapping and basic metalwork (cold techniques only) plus an overview of the properties and gauges of sterling silver and copper wires.
The project section features 25 projects, grouped according to level of difficulty. Each difficulty level utilizes three to four of the main techniques. Some projects will be more focused on weaving while others will be more focused on coiling with wire wrapping and metalwork as secondary techniques. Variation projects will be shown for select projects to provide inspiration for customizing pieces. While some projects are made entirely of wire, others showcase beads and stones along with techniques for incorporating them into your wire jewelry. All projects include detailed step-by-step photos and illustrations.
