From sterling silver, fine silver, and German silver to copper, brass, and artistic wire you can use whatever material fits your budget to make just the custom components you want. Who wouldn't want to have fun making jewelry AND save money at the same time?

Included are over 30 projects for making many different and useful custom wire findings. Starting off for fundamental skills for beginners then progressing for more ambitious and sophisticated designs, Handcrafted Wire Findings offers great projects for crafters and jewelry makers of all skill levels. A variety of techniques are also highlighted, including basic wirework, texturizing, silver fusing, adding patina, and traditional finishes.

I loved this book!
Rating
I found this book to be everything I hoped it would be! Being just a couple of years into Jewelry making, I am ready to make my own findings rather than always needing to buy them. I've worked my way through from cover to cover, a section at a time, making and practice making each design. From basic to intricate, Denise and Jane cover it and make it clear and simple.

Excellent!
I love this book! Why spend so much time making a beautiful piece of jewelery, just to finish it off with standard pre-made clasps or ear-wires? Review by Carys Jones (Posted on 10/5/2011)
A splendid resource
This book certainly gave enough information to be able to not only make the findings but to go beyond, making our own interpretation. The only fault I have with the volumne is that it doesn't have a spring spine to lay flat one the bench. Review by Marlene Feeley (Posted on 8/26/2011)
Handcrafted Wire Findings
The projects in this book were very easy projects for a beginner. If fact, I think this would be a very nice book for a beginner. If more info had been made available, I probably would not have purchased it since I am several years from being a beginner. The book has very good photography and the projects are well laid out and instructions are quite clear. Review by Elaine Kluge (Posted on 6/7/2011)
