Techniques, Projects, and Jig Patterns From Beginner to Advanced
Wing Mun Devenney - All books by this author

There’s just no denying it: wire is a wonderful, versatile, and forgiving material, available in an exciting range of shapes, sizes, and colors. Easily combined with leather, cords, crystals, beads, and stones, wire also has manipulative qualities that make it perfect for techniques such as wrapping, bending, forming, twisting, weaving, knotting, and knitting. In The Complete Guide to Making Wire Jewelry, professional jewelry designer and teacher Wing Mun Devenney—known for her stunning contemporary pieces—gives readers:
  • Step-by-step instructions for 11 exquisite projects, including a Bird’s Nest Necklace, a wire-wrapped, crystal-beaded ring, earrings, bangles, bracets, and more
  • Guidance for design ideas and inspiration, setting up the workspace, and assembling materials and tools
  • Instruction on wire-forming methods for beginning to advanced jewelry makers, including the use of jigs, mandrels, and spiral makers
  • Guided instruction on over 35 techniques, including multi-mandrels, macramé, and hammering wire
  • Jig Pattern Directory features bows, hearts, shoes, animals, and more
This invaluable guide will provide beginning hobbyists and advanced crafters alike with the necessary skills, vision, and know-how to develop and create their own spectacular jewelry designs.
