Learn every step of the wire fusing process. Starting with a detailed discussion of the tools and materials, this book encompasses a lifetime of trial and error experience, saving you time and advancing you toward success. The 10 projects in this book were designed to successively build on your skills in working with wire. Starting with a charm bracelet, you will progress to harnessing found objects, creating a tiered "matchstick" necklace, fusing loops, and on to more complicated, decorative chain and composition work. Beautiful photos take you step-by-step through the process of creating pieces and offers many possible variations.
