Fit To Print -- Wire Style 2

I'm absolutely THRILLED to be reviewing this book for you today!  I received a copy last week (it's available to everyone on March 1st) and I immediately devoured it.  

There are various levels of wire work in the book, and with 45 designs to choose from, you'll find something to love.  Earrings, bracelets, and necklaces are all made with a variety of metals and materials.  Not only will you love the tutorials, but you'll love discovering new bead artists in polymer clay, lampwork glass, and ceramic.  

Learn how to make this necklace in the book! Designer, Cindy Wimmer. Art Beads, Kerry Bogert.

The book also comes with a one-hour instructional DVD -- excellent for those that like to see someone making things in addition to reading instructions.  Even if you don't watch the DVD, you'll find tutorials easy to follow, and they'll provide jewelry designers with a great jumping-off point for creating their own unique designs.

Along with author Denise Peck, the contributors to Wire Style 2 offer their own unique style. (The contributors are Kerry Bogert, Jodi Bombardier, Jane Dickerson, Lorelei Eurto, Connie Fox, Lisa Niven Kelly, Donna Spadafore, and Cindy Wimmer.)

My recommendation?  Run, don't walk, to grab this book as soon as it hits the stands March 1st.  It's an inspiring jewelry design book you won't want to miss.

Lori Anderson is a full-time jewelry designer residing in Maryland.  She writes the blog Pretty Things, and you can see her work at Lori Anderson Designs.
