The 9 wire wrap jewelry designs included in this book are suitable for the beginner and intermediate wire wrap artists. I have written this book as if I were teaching someone in my class, step-by-step. There are over 300 full color, detailed photographs throughout the book. I give helpful hints on wire wrapping techniques that are useful on any wire wrapping project. I include a wire wrapped ammonite fossil that gives you an understanding of wrapping unusual shapes. Then I take a standard cabochon and teach you to create a hinged pendant frame that can then be used for many different cabochons. One of my most popular bracelets is the whimsical weave. If you know how to braid, then you can make this bracelet in less than an hour. It is unique and makes a wonderful gift.
