Remember my recent post featuring two free jewelry making projects from Making Wire & Bead Jewelry: Artful Wirework Techniques? Now you can hear more from authors Janice Berkebile and Tracy Stanley in their interview of each other at Lark Jewelry & Beading!
Before you go read the interview, let me tell you a little more about the book. Tracy and Janice own Wired Arts where they teach wirework and sell supplies in Washington state. If you can’t make it there in person, now you can learn some of their techniques in 24 projects presented in Making Wire & Bead Jewelry. Detailed instructions are enhanced with many photos showing you exactly how to achieve the results you want with wire.
I really love the intricate and delicate forms created by these artists with wire-wrapping, coils, rings, and hammered paddles to name a few of the techniques. Janice says, “To me the most important thing is technique. Because the book has so many step-by-step images, the processes are easy to follow visually, making this the go-to guide for wire-bending techniques. After technique, the rest is just plain wire-bending fun!”
To enter for your chance to win this book full of wire-bending fun, leave a comment telling why you love wirework. The giveaway ends May 11, 2012. Sorry, the giveaway is open to US mailing addresses only.
