After my post yesterday, I dug thru my bookcase looking for my books on crochet wire jewelry. Since I only just learned to knit, I don’t have any knit wire books.Â So I thought youÂ all might like some recommendations and reviews.
Crocheted Wire Jewelry: Innovative Designs & Projects by Arline Fisch. This is a great book, but I’m a huge fan of Ms. Fisch so I could be biased. It has a number of fun projects.
Twist and Loop: Dozens of Jewelry Designs to Knit and Crochet with Wire by Annie Modesitt. I LOVE this book! I can’t find it, but I love it!!! I think I loaned it to someone and never got it back (must call all my friends and see who has it). This book assumes you already have a basic knowledge of crochet/knitting.
Crochet Jewelry by Sophie Britten- I don’t own this book but got it from the library. Its informative but the projects just didn’t ‘WOW’ me. Not a bad book, just not for me. Its a great book for beginners.Â
Knitting with Wire by Nancie Wiseman- I was going to get this book, but alot of it is knit with a knitting machine. Pretty stuff but I have no room for a knitting machine.
I also have a number of Japanese Craft books on Wire crochet. I get them at my local Japanese bookstore-Kinokuniya and on Amazon Japan. You can find them resold on Ebay too.
