Well, what would happen is that you'd get some beautiful jewelry items, things you couldn't IMAGINE. This book, Elements of Style, has ideas to create objects with knitted or crocheted wire. Embellished with beads, you can make earrings, brooches, necklaces, pendants, and bracelets.
At first glance, I did not like this book. Knitted wire seemed a stunt, to me. Then I saw the triangular earrings with rose quartz slim barrel beads on the base. Done in silver wires, they were as ethereal as silver spider webs with translucent dewdrops. I fell in love. Then I saw several necklaces with twisted ropes of flat knitting--very sculptural and modern.
There are ways to make caged beads, flat medallions and squares, ways to make findings or connectors for stone donuts. Not all the designs appealed to me, but quite a few really did catch my eye. I started to consider if I would put those needle nose pliers into my knitting kit and order some silver wire, knitting wire and those quartz beads. Importantly--in the back of the book is a list of suppliers for wires, beads and findings. This is helpful as knitting wire is not something our local craft store supplies.
If you are a beader who understands knitting or crochet, you really HAVE to try out this book. The techniques will spark your creative juices in new ways. If you are a knitter, imagine making a knit brooch, with beads, silver or copper or wool-covered wire that compliments a knitted or crocheted coat. Great stuff. Recommended highly.
