Jewelry-making is one of the most popular craft trends, and its audience continues to grow. Few jewelry books on the market emphasize the importance of the design relationship between beads, wire, and jewelry findings, the "nuts and bolts" of any piece. This book shows not only how to design and build your own spectacular jewelry out of beads and wire but how to design and create your own findings as well.
Most jewelry-making books are geared for the beginner and provide little information for intermediate to advanced jewelry-makers. This book contains illustrated how-to techniques, full-color project photos, project instructions, and numerous tips that enhance the styles and skills presented.
Within its pages, intermediate and advanced jewelry-makers learn new techniques for creating signature elements for their designs, while beginners get a handle on honing their skills.
