Wire Style, from the editor of Step by Step Wire Jewelry magazine, is a collection of fifty contemporary, stylish, and absolutely wearable designs from an array of top designers in the field. Begin with a primer on basic tools and techniques for getting started, then launch right into chic, beautiful designs for bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and pendants handpicked from a collection of top jewelry designers. Each project features a comprehensive materials list and thorough step-by-step instructions, following in the footsteps of Stringing Style and Stringing Style 2.
