Wirework with DVD is a step-by-step guide for the intermediate artist seeking new design possibilities combined with solid technique instruction. Jewelry artists will learn how to wire-wrap using faceted stones, how to create pendants with any size or shape of faceted stone, how to use several methods for working with and setting faceted stones, plus mixing wire gauges and tempers to create stable yet creative pieces.

Dale "Cougar" Armstrong showcases her classic jewelry style and shows how to create beautiful custom bracelets, necklaces, pendants, earrings, and rings. In the eighteen projects included, you'll discover how to work with half-hard wire, when to use other tempers and why, as well as Dale's favorite tools and proper tool usage. Plus, you'll get comprehensive instructions about:

  • Using geometry in wire-jewelry formulations.
  • Making the correct right angles.
  • Shaping with and without mandrels.
  • Using found items for shaping.
  • When and how to use snap-set components.
  • Choosing the right cabochons and gemstones.
You'll find all the basic techniques discussed in Wirework with DVD on an included DVD, giving you a solid base for creating the projects in the book.
