Fit to Print Book Review - 101 Wire Earrings

101 Wire Earrings: Step-by-Step Projects and Techniques by Denise Peck is packed full of innovative and inspiring earring designs. Using both wire-wrapping and some basic metalsmithing techniques the author provides a vast arsenal of new designs to adapt to your own creations.

Along with Denise, who is the editor of Step by Step Wire magazine, contributors include Jane Dickerson, Kerry Bogert and Leslie Rogalski. That's quite a design team!

The front of the book offers helpful tips and photos of the basic techniques used in the projects. Art beads can be found in many of earrings, which I love. In fact, I so loved the projects in this book I pulled out my wire and gave a few of them a test drive. I highly recommend adding this book to your collection.

Visit my blog studio tour for a chance to win these earrings throughout the day!
I also noticed that our dear Cindy Gimbrone is having an earring giveaway today too.
Interweave Press is hosting a fun reader earring exchange and they are offering a free project from the book.

Oh I have to buy another book! I have been amassing them like they are going out of style. I horde them. I read them. I drool over them. Thanks for sharing and for the cool giveaway notices too.
Enjoy the day!
