I’m so, so, pleased and nervous and excited and terrified to share this with you all. Without you I wouldn’t be here.
Here’s what the publisher has to say:
Twist, curl and wrap wire into one-of-a-kind jewelry!
Follow along with author Gayle Bird as she teaches you everything you need to know to create her signature jewelry designs. First learn the basics of color and design, then move into essential wire tutorials. From there, you’ll work your way through 20 step-by-step jewelry projects, including earrings, rings, and necklaces. By the time you finish the book, you’ll be ready to design your own statement jewelry, complete with swirling wire and dazzling gems.
View my appearance on JTV’s Jewel School and see lots about the book, including two projects shown live!
- Tutorials on the essential wire techniques, including spirals, curls and more.
- Chapter on design gives the foundation for creating unique pieces.
- Step-by-step directions for 20 projects.
Folks have been saying really amazing things about the book since it came out, like this fabulous review from Beading Gem:
The essence of this designer’s approach are the curls and double curls in the pieces. These form the basis of her free form work. She includes the directions of how to use just fingers to create these curls. This will take practice to accomplish but once mastered can be used for unique organic designs of your own and not copies of what Gayle does.
This instructor really made an effort to help more hesitant jewelry makers by sharing tips on the design process.
