Unlike the other crochet with wire books I've seen, this one is perfect for the beginner. It has 35 pieces to make including earrings, necklaces and bracelets plus some other items. 32 gauge silver wire seems to be the wire of choice along with #9 seed beads but she also uses other wires and threads and beads. Book begins with intro to crochet for the beginner and then helpful info for the new beader. She uses 2mm to 3.25mm crochet hooks. The items are attractive and by doing them, the reader should be able to move on to even nicer ones or maker his/her own designs. Each pattern has color illus, tips and other good information. End of book has lists of internet suppliers and stores. Crochet terms use Amer. terminology and the book seems sturdy with good print.

I have several books for making crochet jewelry, but this is my favorite. Not only does it have projects with wire (like most of the books out there), but it also has many projects using metallic/specialty yarns. Another bonus, the majority of the projects are things you would actually wear. I've made many of the items, and the instructions are clear and easy to follow. And the 'how to' section has some of the best photos I've seen! I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to get into crocheting jewelry.

I bought this book because I fell in love with the great crocheted wire necklace on the cover. I should have known better. It was the ONLY decent project in the book.

Most of the projects were the kind of stuff ladies did back in the 1950's & 1960's: Little crocheted flowers to wear on your lapel, crocheting over bangle bracelets & other sorts of the same type of projects. All would get dirty & be thrown away after a short time. As a child, I remember wearing these sorts of things.

Another point or two: I think this book was sponsered by one bead company & one yarn company because that is all the recommendations for materials the author makes. It is difficult to decern what size beads are to be used, but the brand name & the color numbers are VERY prominent. I've also learned from experience that finding yarn that matches the size within the project is very difficult unless you have a VERY savvy locally owned yarn store close at hand.

I plan to make the necklace on the cover at some point. It is a choker. I hate chokers, so I will make it longer to suit myself.

I was VERY disappointed in this book.

Lately I've been seeing a lot of interest in crochet and beads. Past just doing crocheted ropes, a lot of people who both crochet and bead are interested in more ways to combine the two crafts.
One of my favorite parts about crocheting with beads is how fast it is and how easy it is to fall into repetition while working which makes it's a perfect portable project. Once your beads are threaded on your wire or cotton, you just need that, your hook, and a small pair of scissors. I remember my grandmother crocheting long strands of gold thread accented with fake pearls to use as garlands for the Christmas tree.
This is a good book to start with. The projects are simple, using basic stitches. The introduction explains the tools, has well photographed instructions for the basic stitches, and an explanation of some of the beading techniques used. So if you are an absolute beginner at either beading or crochet, you can get the information you need to start the projects.
The projects use a few mediums. Some are yarn or fiber only to create jewelry pieces. Then there are a bunch that are beaded. The author uses beads with thread or wire.
My favorite projects are the fiber with beads projects, like the sweet Pretty In Pink choker which combines perle cotton, rocaille beads and satin ribbon into a quick to stitch choker that would look lovely made to match a prom dress. The Bang Bangles would make great very quick gifts for girls and women on your holiday gift giving list. You can frequently find inexpensive wire bangles on clearance at various mall shops. This is a fun use for them. The Bead and Wire Amulet is worked in the round using wire and beads to make a large circular pendant that's absolutely wearable as a bold and lightweight piece of jewelry. The finger crocheted bracelet is a great project to do with children, and longer strands could also be used as garlands on Christmas trees.

I have always had an interest in learning to crochet and have been making jewelry for years. So when i found this book that combines the two, I had to get it. It shows you 35 pieces to make, but all you have to do is switch up the colors it calls for, and you can make hundreds of thousands of different pieces.
