Intermediate jewelry artists seeking new design possibilities can learn step-by-step instructions on how to wire-wrap using faceted stones, how to create pendants with any size or shape or faceted stone, how to use several methods of working with and setting faceted stones, plus mixing wire gauges and tempers to create stable and creative pieces. All the basic techniques being used are also demonstrated on the included DVD, giving you a solid base for creating the projects in this book.

In Wirework with DVD, Dale "Cougar" Armstrong showcases her classic jewelry style and shows how to create beautiful custom bracelets, necklaces, pendants, earrings, and rings in 18 projects. You'll learn:

  • how to work with half-hard wire; when to use other tempers and why
  • Dale's favorite tools and proper tool usage
  • using geometry in wire-jewelry functions; making the "right" right angles; shaping with and without mandrels; using "found" items for shaping; when and how to use snap-set components; choosing the right cabochons and gemstones
Wirework with DVD will challenge artists to be creative, think outside the box, and transform jewelry into their own style.

Great book
This book has very detailed instructions, excellent photography, and hints that encourage wire workers to progress at their own pace. Great price for a must have book Review by Lydia (Posted on 9/4/2015)
The best ever!
Dale 'Cougar' Armstrong is by far the best instructor in wire jewelry! I have had previous instructors and classes, but her book and dvd is by far the best investment I have ever made in my learning process!! Her instructions are concise, clear, easy to understand, and within minutes you will be creating beautiful pieces of jewelry! I only wish there were more instructional videos by her around that didn't cost in the hundreds! Review by Nickole (Posted on 10/15/2014)
