The author's writing is wonderful as she explains how she got into the field, but the projects themselves are nothing special. The photography of the plants that are the background for the jewelry is much nicer than the work itself. The options for metals are several, but all projects are done in the expensive silver, not allowing the reader to truly determine if less expensive craft wire will produce anything nice.
The author contends that one need not know how to knit prior to picking up the book. That is a farcical statement. Had I not known how to knit, I'd not have the vaguest notion of how to create the projects.
Very, very disappointing.

What I like most about KNITTED WIRE JEWELRY is that the finished pieces look like commercial jewelry, because they're made entirely of metal wire, sheet metal, and semiprecious stones. I purchased the book because I liked the necklace on the book's cover: that design is fairly representative of the pieces in the book.

This book is an excellent addition to a knitter's technical bookshelf. About one-third of the book is devoted to tools, choosing materials, wire knitting techniques, and knitted jewelry techniques (e.g., wrapping wire, adding beads, forming sheet metal, applying a patina). The techniques are explained step by step, and the steps are clearly illustrated with large full-color photos.

There are patterns for rings (5), earrings (6), bracelets (7), and necklaces (7). My favorite patterns are the Lily Necklace (the cover design), the Viking necklace, bracelet, and hoops (simple knitted metal cords), the Mixed-Link Bracelet (three sheet metal rectangles with knitted interiors, all linked together with knitted cords), the Leaf Earrings (a single leaf with wrapped-wire veins), and the Opal Rectangle Earrings (long, dangly strips with single pear-cut Peruvian Opals attached as pendants).

Probably I'll never actually make any of these pieces, but the book gives me all the information I need to create my own professional-looking wire jewelry based on knitting techniques. Two other good books on knitted wire jewelry are Nancie Wiseman's Knitting with Wire, and Annie Modesitt's Twist and Loop: Dozens of Jewelry Designs to Knit and Crochet with Wire. Of the three, I like KNITTED WIRE JEWELRY the best, because of the excellent photographs illustrating the techniques, and the elegant simplicity of the designs.

I really wish I could ask the book publishers who decide what to include in the preview just exactly what the hell they're thinking. I don't need a bunch of info about findings or how to knit; I can find that info any number of places. What I want to find out from the preview is what PROJECTS the book offers, not a bunch of worthless info.

If you are thinking of knitting with wire for the first time this is a great book as it takes you from A-Z.
If you are an experinced wire knitter it will provide you with new inspiration. Excellent instructions and layout.

This is really a very well explained guide and quite easy to follow. Instruments, tools, and materials are also exlpained, and there is a good deal of easy but impressive jewelry models. I don't rate it 5 only because I expected them to be more, but those available are also a good start for a beginner.

Miss-matched for my skill level. I look forward to the benefits of the book when as I become more proficient as a craftman. In the meantime, have passed it to my sister-in-law who is thrilled to have it!

The best part of this book is the cover. The projects inside are amateurish and not at all like the cover project. I'm sorry I purchased it.
