It’s here!!! Easy Wire 2009 is out (officially on Oct. 27th)…complete with 60 new designs! I am honored to say I have contributions to this wonderful publication….and you’ll find tutorials from my friends Jeanette and Sharon as well! It just feels so good to see this year’s issue in print after all of the designing and writing…and months of anticipation.
Want a little look behind the scenes? Here’s a peek at the “Inspire” bracelet in the beginning stages…back when I was trying to decide upon the right links, and before it was oxidized and tumble polished. I’m glad I ultimately used the versatile copper washers.…they are really fun to texture with a hammer and layer for a little depth.
I am so thrilled to say I also contributed a copper/lampwork bracelet tutorial, a selection of wirework clasps, and earrings in a classic wirework style. You can find all of the tools and supplies you need for these projects at fundametals.
And now the part you’ve been waiting for…..
