This review is from: Beautiful Wire Jewelry for Beaders: Creative Wirework Projects for All Levels (Paperback) I loved this book as both a fervent beader and someone who’s just starting to work with wire. There’s a nice incline of projects from beginner to more advanced that’s just challenging enough but not so difficult that you end up putting the book on your shelf of “maybe someday I’ll learn how to do that.” The photos of the projects are very clear with great close-ups, and Ms. Miech gives really excellent directions that aren’t too advanced or overwhelming for a newbie. She also includes a very nice list of tools, terms, wire you’ll generally need and things like that at the beginning that is very accessible to the general jewelry maker. Nothing intimidating! I was thinking the only problem I had was even the marvelous bead shop I have locally didn’t carry the awesome beads I saw in the book and then at the back, reading Ms. Miech’s bio, I saw she has her own bead store not two hours from me and just down the road from my brother’s house – guess who’s going to get a visitor! I highly recommend this book for, as the title says, beaders looking to add wire features to their work. It’s very inspirational, even if you don’t follow the projects shown to the letter.

This review is from: Beautiful Wire Jewelry for Beaders: Creative Wirework Projects for All Levels (Paperback) Irina Meich now turns her attention to wire jewelry after putting out the excellent trio of “Metal Clay for Beaders” books.Most wire jewelry books usually cover just one aspect of wire work such as basic and wrapped loops or maybe its devoted to wire binding.This book is very well thought out. The beginning of the book show some wire baskets she made as a child and she proves herself as a master wire worker.Irina Meich covers a broad spectrum of techniques such as basic and wrapped loops, jump rings, making components. However, she also adds a variety of cabochon wraps and other techniques for stones without holes. There are also wire-shaping techniques in the advanced section.Each project has clearly written step-by-step instructions and photographsalong with a gallery of variations once the technique is mastered.The design are fresh but they are also classic at the same time and won’t look dated as jewelry trends come and go.

This review is from: Beautiful Wire Jewelry for Beaders: Creative Wirework Projects for All Levels (Paperback) After reading the positive reviews on this one I bought the book and what they said is absolutely right on. I also have bought many disappointing beading books, and I was so happy to find this one does not fall in that category. Not only are the designs actually attractive and creative, this book goes into detail about many techniques and tools that you need to go beyond the usual wire wrap loop and it has detailed step by step photos and projects are arranged by difficulty level. The intro suggests that each project teaches you a new skill, and that if you do the projects in order each one builds on the other, so it is like a class that you can take at home. I look forward to expanding my skills with this book!
