All Wired Up By Mark Lareau Softcover, 127 pages ISBN 1-883010-73-X
The step-by-step techniques featured in this richly illustrated book take the beginner who knows little about wirework on a journey to creating artistic and unique free-form jewelry. Using round wire that is readily available and economically viable, wireworkers learn everything from how to hold pliers to how to make ear wires, hook-and-eye closures, and cages for marbles and cabochons. Over 240 line drawings, photographs of finished objects, and a wirework gallery of pieces by the author and other contemporary wirework artists provide sample creations and ideas for the innovative wireworker.

"At the bead shows, the artists recommended this book for starting wire-working and it truly is what I was looking for. They told me to skip taking a class and just buy this book, alot less expensive and I have the book to refer to all the time.
Basic techniques that are up my alley and got me started to embellish my beadwork even more. It is clear and easy to follow. Highly recommended!"
