A Word From the Author:
"Knowing how to select the appropriate wire is the key to your success. The materials lists will help you choose the perfect wire for every task. Each wire variety has its own merits — it’s impossible to make a thin wire stronger or a thick wire more flexible — so read through the wire descriptions on page 8 to learn more about them. Every project specifies a certain wire that will not only help you recreate the piece, but also spare you any guesswork or frustration.
And don’t forget the beads! Adding beads to wirework can give your jewelry designs a whole new depth, dimension and sparkle. Pair crystals with bright silver wires, or choose ceramics beads to go with darker ones. Lampwork and handmade beads enhance more organic wire designs, while commercially produced beads can still pack a punch with whimsical styles. Page 9 features descriptions of beads perfect for the projects in this book." — Heidi Boyd

This book is made with the beginner in mind; only two earring projects use more expensive sterling silver wire. The majority of the projects use more expensive sterling silver wire. The majority of the projects are made with plated or coated copper wire. Copper wire has the advantage of being easy to use, affordable and widely available. You can practice a technique over and over again without worrying about the cost. If you’re happy with your results and want to make the piece in sterling, by all means please do, just stick with user-friendly half-hard round silver wire.
For the sake of variety I've added some really interesting wires. Black annealed wire is found at the hardware store; the outside coating can be sanded, adding depth to its appearance. New aluminum wire is very soft and light — even the thick 12-gauge makes hefty-looking pieces that are a joy to wear.Love the Wired Beautiful eBook? Let us Know! Leave a Review Here!
