Wonderful, Wearable Wire is a new book of 180 wire working designs made on the WigJig Olympus Transparent Jig. This 172-page book has 5 chapters - Chains, Links and Clasps, Pendants and Earrings, Yokes and Pins, Suncatchers and Holiday Ornaments, and Wire Working Tips & Hints. It's so simple to duplicate the book's designs because of the transparency of the WigJig Olympus. Just place the jig on top of the patterns, place the pegs and form the designs. The book has many great ideas for wire designs, that it is a great resource, even without the WigJig Olympus.
The Wire Working Tips & Hints chapter is filled with 28 pages of wire working techniques. We show you how to make wire cages, how to wire wrap beads, how to make pins, coils, scrolls, and much more. We have also included color photographs throughout the book that depict many of the book's designs in a variety of wire types, including sterling silver, gold-filled and colored Artistic Wire.
