Easy Wire 2012

by Cindy on June 15, 2012

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 LeggettLori 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.


Brass wire is paired with crystal in these wire-wrapped wrapped earrings. So simple to make, that’s why they call it easy wire. 🙂

And lastly, if you can create a simple loop, you can make these two-tone earrings!

* Super Simple Giveaway:  Leave a comment and you’ll be entered in a chance to win these earrings!  I’ll draw a winner one day next week.

As always, I appreciate your visit!  Have a great weekend ahead.

I am just getting interested in working with wire. I have to say that I am drawn to your work and your other selections more than any others that I have seen. I certainly will continue checking your site. Thanks for the inspiration!
