Creating Artisan Jewelry: Weave, Wrap, Coil by Jodi Bombadier

If you're a wire wrapper or a wire jewelry enthusiast looking to increase your wire art jewelry skills, I've got just the book for you. Jodi Bombadier's new book, Weave, Wrap, Coil, Creating Artisan Jewelry, can catapult usual wire wrapped jewelry into the truly elegant piece of jewelry. Jodi will not only teach you her elegant and sophisticated style of wire wrapping but, a lovely bonus, she'll also teach you to weave wire.

Ms. Bombadier begins her book with an interesting introduction, explaining her own adventure into wire jewelry making. The next section leads into Fundamentals of Wire, necessary to begin working any of her projects in the book. Following this, Jodi provides a thorough description of all the tools you'll need. In the Techniques section you'll find five separate weaving patterns as well. If you've always wanted to weave wire, these very simple patterns are just what you've been looking for.

Weave, Wrap, Coil proceeds to break down projects into beginner, intermediate and advanced projects. There's something for everyone here. Beginners will love the nine projects for them in this book including simple earrings, bracelets and a pendant. The cuff is particularly appealing. While still a simple project, it's gracefully designed. This author makes very simple changes in the way she treats her end wires to the good.

Nine more projects can be found in the Intermediate section. A diverse selection of projects is located here.

Creating Artisan Jewelry starts winding down in its final section for Advanced projects. Seven more projects are here totaling twenty-five for the entire book. As if that weren't enough, you'll also have the chance to learn wire weaving.

Creating Artisan Jewelry: Weave, Wrap, Coil by Jodi Bombadier offers much to anyone interested in learning some simple as well as sophisticated techniques for making wire jewelry. You'll find many of the book's projects having twenty or more step by step instructions. The very detailed illustrations should make it hard to fail when doing any of the projects. The well thought out lay out of the book also make it a real pleasure to work with. Adding to the fact that this book has numerous excellent projects, Ms. Bombadier adds her beautiful and elegant design sensibilities to a craft that often lacks just that. Well done indeed.
