Have you heard? Easy Wire 2012 will be hot off the press very soon…. In fact, the digital edition is already available for download at the Interweave site!
Easy Wire 2012 is another jam-packed issue, filled with 70+ projects especially geared for the beginning wire-worker. I think you’ll find there’s a little something for everyone, no matter what your skill level may be. The bright and bold piece on the cover is fantastic – a bracelet by Cassie Donlen. It was great to see many jewelry designers from our community being featured in the 2012 issue, including my friends Kerry Bogert, Julie Anne Leggett, Lori Anderson and Heather Powers.
I enjoyed creating a few projects for this issue, including this wire link that forms a great chain. Break out your favorite design stamp or simply add texture with one of your hammers to customize the design.
If you’re just getting started with wire, here’s an opportunity to practice your briolette wrap. Before you know it, you’ll have some dangly earrings to wear this summer.
