Book Project Examples

I spent some time this weekend making pieces that follow the techniques from my new book, Freeform Wire Art Jewelry. This one was made using a series of beads I pulled for a Color example in the Design portion of the book. A traditional complementary colour scheme of blue and orange makes up this colorway, inspired by the artisan-made lampworked focal bead:

I did pull out a few more and I ended up ditching the larger beads, but it’s essentially the same colorway nonetheless:

Announcement: Freeform Wire Art Jewelry

So, I’ve been sitting on some really big news for oh… say, a year. It’s been taking up a lot of my time and it’s been KILLING ME that I couldn’t announce it. But now – I can!

You guys. I wrote a book.

Last fall, FW Media found my tutorials online and came knocking at my door, asking me to write a step-by-step jewelry book. I gathered my thoughts, took a jillion photos, had the wonderful Jayme Burns take beauty shots for me (that’s her gorgeous shot on the cover), and wrote and edited and wrote and edited all year.

And now, you can pre-order it on Amazon!!

I’m so, so, pleased and nervous and excited and terrified to share this with you all. Without you I wouldn’t be here.

Keep an eye out for more news as publishing unfolds.
