A Word From the Author:

"It took a complete shift in my focus to realize that wire could expand the possibilities of my jewelry design. Wire’s design possibilities are limitless. A thicker gauge wire can become the core of a bangle, be wrapped into a link or be formed into a toggle clasp. Medium-gauge wires can be shaped into earwires, coiled into jump rings or even wrapped into a bead. Thinner gauge wire is so flexible it can be knitted and crocheted into intricate masterpieces.

Never again will I trek to store after store in search of a simple jump ring clasp or earwire; with wire, I can make them in any color and size I want.

With a single coil of wire and a few tools, you can twist, shape, link and hammer almost any jewelry component and save both time and money." — Heidi Boyd

Check Out This Excerpt From Wired Beautiful:

If you’re having trouble sliding the rubber tubing over the wire, add a drop of olive oil to your thumb and pointer finger and grease the wire. The rubber tubing will slide right on.

To ensure good balance, carefully distribute colors, shapes and sizes of the beads across the front of the cuff . Try to avoid positioning the same kinds of beads alongside each other.
