In Bead and Wire Jewelry Exposed, authors Katie Hacker, Fernando DaSilva and Margot Potter offer over 50 high-fashion jewelry pieces made using unique techniques that reveal typically hidden components like beading wire, cording, findings, tubing and chain as the central focus of the design. While the pieces may look complex, the techniques are simple enough for beginners – yet sophisticated enough for veteran jewelry crafters. A comprehensive getting started section gives crafters information on the supplies, tools and techniques they’ll need to make all of the projects in the book, and the broad range of styles guarantees appeal for all audiences.
